    One thought on “Lady Bluebeard: The True Story of Love and Marriage, Death and Flypaper”

    1. This book, based on facts, gives the account of the events from the point of view of detectives that hunted her down. Fascinating to see the grunt work of the pre-WWII era law enforcement. Personally I am surprised the sheriff approved all the leg work/travel his deputy did on this case. You only get brief points of view the the murderess. I just would like to know what she spent all her money on--never mentioned at all. I highly recommend this book to CSI fans, that enjoy history.

    2. This was interesting to me because it is a true story based in Twin Falls. To be honest I live about a mile from where she is buried. Very interesting story and interesting how the saying Serial Killer came to be.

    3. Another intriguing true story spoilt by appalling editing, sadly. Repeated apostrophes missing, the became thd, very became veiy, were became we're, obscene became oscend and some dates were mixed up too. It didn't make for a pleasurable read though I persisted because I wanted to learn more about how Lyda ended up.She was certainly an intriguing character who got away with more than she was prosecuted for, I'd expect. She was certainly ingenious in her escapes from the law many times.It was a v [...]

    4. The is the story of the first known female serial killer in the U.S set in a time period when most people had no idea what a serial killer was. Nor did they think a woman could be so cold blooded as to kill not only several husbands, but also her own relatives. The book is a great study into the mind of an very intelligent woman who used her cunningness to kill and get away with it, and pull a great prison escape. I found it to be well worth my time to read and enjoy.

    5. As American As Apple Pie!Extremely interesting story about America's first serial killer. Well researched and thoughtfully presented. I especially enjoyed the details around the men searching for Lyda.
