    First off, if you're expecting a book about a true crime with the writing of the caliber of an Ann Rule or Vincent Bugliosi, you will be sorely disappointed. This wasn't so much a story about a murder as it was of the woman who may or may not have committed at least one of the murders. This book is not written IN-DEPTH and the author does not get into very many details. In fact, most of her information comes from the grandson of the murderer and from another book on the subject. As far as light First off, if you're expecting a book about a true crime with the writing of the caliber of an Ann Rule or Vincent Bugliosi, you will be sorely disappointed.

This book is not written IN-DEPTH and the author does not get into very many details. In fact, most of her information comes from the grandson of the murderer and from another book on the subject. As far as light reading goes, this is probably the lightest true crime book I have ever read. That's not to say it isn't interesting but it's like reading Cinderella when you were expecting Gone With the Wind. I did enjoy the book, I just wish the author had gotten more information or the book had been written by a real true crime author. Still, as I said it was interesting and I read it all the way through and never once considered stopping before the end.

    The old adage, "things are seldom as they appear" fits this book nicely. The woman who suffered for this crime for so many years was most likely guilty of making poor choices in regard to men and friends, but that shouldn't condemn a person to a life of vilification and incarceration. A fascinating read! What I find even more amazing is Winnie Ruth Judd's character.. She didn't grow bitter and continued to help and reach out to others. Wow! Few who endured anything close to what she did can say The old adage, "things are seldom as they appear" fits this book nicely.

Few who endured anything close to what she did can say the same! Highly recommend this book!

    Very concise and to the point account of 1931 murderd I read earlier books about Winnie Ruth Judd years ago and, when I saw this smaller version, I decided to get it. Actually, I learned more information from this quick read. The information provided by the grandson of a good friend of Winnie's was also a nice touch. Great read. Highly recommend to all interested in true crime stories.
