Poison Widow : Arsenic Murders in the Jazz Age
by C. J. March




Overview -
First, she predicts your death. Then, you die. Usually, writhing in pain. Is she a fortune teller, or something much, much darker? Nobody tells the police, not for a long time, because, well, nobody in Chicago's Little Warsaw wants to cross Tillie Klimek.

The body count racks up as Jazz Age Chicago's most notorious female poisoner takes down husband after husband, and some other relatives while she's at it. Few, it seems, can resist Tillie's cooking. But is this Mrs. Bluebeard working alone? Or is she part of a bigger, more diabolical "poison trust"? And can Chicago's Finest get to her before her latest husband, already mortally ill, dies? Poison Widow is a true-crime aficionado's feast, arsenic-laced and stuffed with tasty noir morsels.

If you're a fan of Erik Larson's Devil in the White City, Harold Schechter's Little Slaughterhouse on the Prairie, and Truman Capote's In Cold Blood, you'll love Dead True Crime.

Poison Widow: Arsenic Murders in the Jazz Age is part of Dead True Crime, a series of historical true crime stories of serial killers, bizarre cases, and little-known murderers. Meticulously researched short reads, they're the perfect length for a flight, the beach, or a sleepless night.

C.J. March brings you a series of tales that will keep you turning the pages deep into the night.
