Mixed feelings about this book. Read it, not because I am an Anne Perry fan..I'm not.
Read it as a biography to gain insight into what makes teenage girls kill. Got some,and feel Perrys life is an argument against recidivisim.
Bothered me that in the photo section there are multiple pictures,but none of the dead woman.concession, or omission?

Quite interesting if you are a fan of the writer Anne Perry. Not only does this book uncover to the general reading public that she was involved in a world famous trial herself as a teenager, but it tries to link this experience and her imprisonment to her writing. Worth a read.
