Synopsis: She drove a school bus in Schenectady, New York. She even worked as a nurse's aide in a pediatric ward. But this seemingly normal woman killed her ninth child by smothering it and is suspected of doing the same to her other eight children--while escaping suspicion for more than a decade. HC: Morrow. (Nonfiction) Ctn Qty/50.

From Publishers Weekly: Marybeth Tinning of Schenectady, N.Y., bore eight children and adopted a ninth; all of the infants died, even though all but one seemed healthy. Autopsies were performed on some, with inconclusive results, and the causes of death were generally described as undetermined or ascribed to crib death. Except for the first baby, who had died of a congenital illness, Tinning had probably killed them all, according to Egginton's ( The Poisoning of Michigan ) sensitive, thought-provoking study. An insecure, unstable woman married to an emotionless, passive husband, Tinning suffered, the author concludes, from postpartum psychosis, induced by her belief that she was an unfit mother and by her inability to cope with the everyday problems of raising children. Convicted of murdering her ninth baby, Tami Lynne, Tinning is serving a 20-year-to-life sentence. Photos not seen by PW.

Book Description True Crime 1989 Paperback, 1989. Book Condition: Good. Year after year, one after another, the babies of Marybeth Tinning died - nine children in 14 years. Incredibly, neither police nor coroners, doctors, social workers or neighbours suspected anything. The vague verdicts of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome fooled even Marybeth's husband. On 4th February 1986, however, six weeks after the last baby's death, even he had to face the unthinkable - as his wife was charged with their murder. This book tells the story of Marybeth Tinning's children, her arrest and subsequent trial. 379 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 442993

Book Description W. H, Allen, London England, 1989. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st UK Paperback Edition. Paperback. Very slight shelf wear to top edge of spine. Tiny crease to corner front cover. On the surface she was a normal working-class women who held responsible jobs. But Marybeth Tinning barely mentioned her children, and when she did there were no outward signs of sorrow. She would recite their names and birth dates as though she was reading a list, citing a cause of death in each but having nothing more to say about them. There were no affectionate little anecdotes, no spoken memores no sense of tragedy at their loss. They seemed to slip in and out like little wraiths leaving no palable impressions. There were six autopsies and never any sign of abuse. There were whispers and suspicions. But there was no clear or rational explanation. Marybeth said her children cried a lot; they made her feel nervous; they made her feel she was not a good mother. But then another baby died.And no-one understood the silence operating in a community where infants died in a way that seemed too terrible to be true. Illustrated. 379 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions ,and all types of Academic Literature.). Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 089598
