Synopsis

From the #1 New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Gregg Olsen...

The basis for a new documentary on Investigation Discovery!

With photos for the first time in ebook!

BONUS: Chapter from Olsen's latest: IF I CAN'T HAVE YOU: SUSAN POWELL, HER MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE AND THE MURDER OF HER CHILDREN

Sharon Nelson, a Colorado woman, had her lover Gary Adams murder two of her three husbands. But more interesting than the crime itself is Olsen's portrait of Nelson as a brash, trashy, manipulative sexpot who believed that she was entitled to (and got) everything and everyone she wanted: even her confession, given freely to police in a Pizza Hut in 1988, was anything but contrite. Moreover, Olsen records the recollections of many community members who saw Nelson for what she was, yet seemed oblivious to the adultery, theft and murder under their noses (Publisher's Weekly).

With all new foreword by M. William Phelps, 2011, Investigative journalist, author of 20 books, creator and star of Investigation Discovery’s “Dark Minds”
