The true story of a Little Rock beauty whose deadly wiles led to two murders and scandalized an entire state.

The true saga of Arkansas beauty Mary Lee Orsini, whose seductive allure had tragic and deadly consequences for those who crossed her path: her husband (shot dead in his bed), the defense lawyer who tried to help her (his wife was murdered), and the prosecutor whose political career she ruined. Widow’s Web is a compelling story of sexual blackmail and murder from an award-winning journalist.
