In August 2009, former madam Dalia Dippolito conspired with a hit man to arrange her husband's murder. Days later, Dalia came home to an elaborate crime scene. When Sgt. Frank Ranzie informed her of her husband's apparent murder, the newlywed Dippolito collapsed into the cop's arms, like any loving wife would do. The only thing missing from her performance were actual tears. And the only thing missing from the murder scene was an actual murder. Tipped off by one of Dalia's lovers, an undercover cop posing as a hit man met with Dalia while his team planned and staged the murder scenario. Poison Candy takes you behind and beyond the courtroom scenes.

Elizabeth Parker began as a prosecutor in the Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office in 1998, where she quickly rose through the ranks and achieved the position of chief assistant state attorney, in which she litigated high-profile cases. She has appeared on Dateline, Snapped, Sins and Secrets, Nothing Personal, and In Session for her role as the lead prosecutor in the Dalia Dippolito case. In 2011 Parker opened her own victim advocacy and criminal defense firm in Palm Beach County. As a criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor, Elizabeth has appeared on Nancy Grace and In Session and in USA Today as a legal analyst on high-profile cases such as those of Jerry Sandusky, George Zimmerman, John Goodman, Adam Kauffman, and Tammy Smith.Review:
"This is an engagingly told, eyebrow-raising story of a nice guy with a bad past; a manipulative, brazen almost-murderess; and thugs, both softhearted and heartless, that is spiced with trial excerpts and the intricacies of Florida’s legal system."
Eloise Kinney, Bookist Online
Like a real-life story by James M. Cain, Poison Candy has a beautiful dame who’s full of venom and a trusting mug who’s too blinded by her charms to know she’s taking him for all he’s worth or that she’s planning to kill him. Told from the perspective of a tough-talking woman prosecutor, Elizabeth Parker, and veteran crime writer Mark Ebner, this tale of greed and manipulation in Palm Beach County is impossible to put down.”
Nancy Jo Sales, Vanity Fair, author of The Bling Ring
Start with a South Florida trifecta of cash, cocaine, and call girls. Throw in Nancy Grace, street gangs, and even a cop reality show. Then top it off with an absorbing courtroom drama starring the beautiful aspiring black widow. A great read and it’s all true.”
Roy Black, senior partner at Black, Srebnick, Kornspan & Stumpf, P.A. and legal commentator
"Elizabeth Parker presented a compelling case at trial, and now gives us all the juicy tidbits banned from the courtroom. Poison Candy proves the adage that truth is stranger than fiction. This is a must-read for true-crime aficionados."
Beth Karas, Legal Analyst and former Correspondent for Court TV's In Session
Not even Hollywood could come up with a character as evil and calculating as Dalia Dippolito! For anyone who wants to truly understand how diabolical criminals operate and get away with what they do Poison Candy is a must read. I couldn’t put it down!”
Diane Dimond, investigative crime reporter and author
"Poison Candy is an essential read. Destined to become a true crime classic."
Mandy Stadtmiller, XOJane.com
"Elizabeth Parker, the prosecutor who convicted Dalia Dippolito, tells the behind-the-scenes story of what really happened behind the femme fatale sting and subsequent trial. One of Florida’s most skilled and experienced criminal trial attorneys, she unfolds little known details of the case in a narrative that is rich with the insights of a veteran litigator and is very hard to put down. Parker and co-author Mark Ebner have produced a captivating account of one of Florida’s most notorious cases."
Bob Butterworth, Former Florida Attorney General
"The only thing more riveting than having experienced this already legendary Florida crime saga in real time is reliving it via Parker and Ebner's page-turner. Who needs fiction when you can devour Poison Candy?”
Billy Corben, director of Cocaine Cowboys, The U, and Raw Deal: A Question of Consent
"If the Coen Brothers ever decide to do an up-to-date version of Billy Wilder’s cynical, similarly caustic Ace in the Hole, they need look no further than Poison Candy."
