Living as a man, twenty-one-year-old Teena Brandon hit the dust bowl town of Falls City, Nebraska, on the run from family in Lincoln, and from the law for forging checks. Handsome and sophisticated, Brandon was an instant success with young women hanging all over him. But when Brandon started to date the beautiful blonde Lana Tisdel, her luck ran out. In a terrifying incident on Christmas Eve, Brandon's sexual identity was unmasked. On New Year's Eve, Brandon, a roommate, and a friend were found shot to death in an isolated farmhouse.
Cincinnati heart surgeon Darryl Sutorious was spellbound, convinced he'd found the perfect wife. With bewitching hazel eyes and exquisite clothes, Dante Britteon seemed to have stepped straight out of Vogue and into his arms. But their honeymoon didn't last long. Beneath Dante's china-doll facade lured a dangerous woman, a man-hater born as Della Faye Hall, whose four previous marriages had been spiced with butcher knives, pistols, vandalized houses and lover set on fire, according to the men she ensnared. And by the time Darryl, haunted by his own impotence, summoned the strength to demand out of the marriage, Della Faye was only too happy to oblige: with a bullet to the brain. In this stunning book, New York Times bestselling author Aphrodite Jones traces the intricate web of this fiendishly calculating sexual con artist. From Della Faye Hall's strange childhood to her violent marriages, from the police investigation to the murder trial, this is the shocking story of a suburban femme fatale, a gold-digger driven by jealousy and greed to torture her husband to death.
