About the Author

Robert Scott discovered that true-crime writing is incredibly interesting, as "You have to be part journalist, part detective and part analytical writer for the true crime market." Robert's books have detailed the lives of killers and victims, police detectives and FBI agents—from California to Iowa, from the Canadian border to the Mexican border. They've depicted stories from a murderous male/female team in the High Sierras to a psychopathic killer on the mean streets of Los Angeles. They've also told the stories of victims, from an exotic dancer, to a beautiful but naive college girl, to a loving and vulnerable ranch wife. "The lives of the victims, and the detectives who brought them justice, are vitally important in these stories," Robert said. "I absolutely believe in a comment related to me by an Assistant United States Attorney, 'To the living we owe respect, to the dead we owe the truth.'"

Robert is currently working on true crime books set in Oregon and Northern California. Robert has been on many television shows on Discovery ID, A&E, E!, and Tru TV.

This is a very well written book.. R.Scott did a great job, i really enjoyed this book i didnt skip any pages, i love the way this book was wrote.. it did not go on n on as some books do..Miriam is a evil women, and soooo deserved what she got. I wish i knew a lil more info about her first husbands death and their marriage, i feel theres more to him killing himself, with his own hand !! I think she may of helped a lil.. its ashame and sad so many innocent lives get cut short because of evil, greedy, money hungry killers !! readers you wont be disappointed reading this book .... Bn

As much as I really tried, I just couldn't get into this book. Nothing really jumped out of the pages and hit me in the face like other books I've read. This is of course, just my opinion.

I found this book very poorly written. I felt like I was reading a 10th grade essay.

Wife kills husband but has history of previous husband dying in similar manner. Not much of a mystery!

She sighed and leaned against a wall, putting her face in her hands.

How many times (HMT) can an author inflict acronyms upon you? Not only is the book a boring recitation of police reports and statements-you could write this book from a court file-the writer just loves (WJL) turning everything person, place and agency (PPA) into its initials. Do not buy this book.
