Overview
In the 1950s, Macon, Georgia, was a sleepy little town where doors remained unlocked and crime was something that occurred in other places. Anjette Lyle's restaurant was a popular gathering place. Then, one day, Anjette was charged with the murders of two husbands, her mother-in-law, and her nine-year-old daughter, all committed over the course of seven years. The case was the most sensational Macon had ever seen and newspaper accounts carried allegations of murder with references to voodoo ceremonies and black magic. The trial attracted record crowds and received worldwide coverage. Both lucidly written and emotionally engaging, this is the story of a woman who was called both ?coldblooded? and the ?sweetest woman I ever knew.? The author interviewed jurors, a prosecutor, the jailer and his wife, Anjette's friends, acquaintances, and employees. Drawn largely from the 1,000-page trial transcript, this story is told in the very words of the people who lived it.
