Killer Debutante

Kelley Cannon was living the American Dream. The former prom queen had three beautiful children with her successful, handsome husband, Jim, and an elegant home in well-to-do Nashville. But when their housekeeper found Jim murdered, strangled to death as their children slept, the fairytale collapsed. Behind the facade, Kelley's glamorous lifestyle was being torn apart by infidelity, alcohol, and drug abuse. When she went from prime suspect to accused, a jury had to decide--How could a 90-pound woman overpower a grown man to death? Their finding: premeditated murder, a life sentence--and a storybook life that masked a dark, violent truth . . .

"What caused petite, pretty Kelley Cannon to snap? Find out in this page-turning account of a woman who killed her husband." --Burl Barer, Edgar Award-winning Author of Body Count and Head Shot

"A gripping true-crime shocker."--Burl Barer
