About this title


Probes the strange and disturbing case of Marybeth Tinning, a woman whose trial for the death of one of her infants led to the discovery that she killed all nine of her children

From Library Journal:

From 1972 to 1985, all the children of the Tinnings, a Schenectady, N.Y. couple, died in infancy. At first, friends and physicians assumed they were victims of "crib death" or an inexplicable genetic flaw. As the deaths continued, suspicion mounted against the mother, who was always alone when her babies were stricken. Without hard evidence, officialdom was agonizingly slow to act, but finally, following a police interrogation, Marybeth made a confession (later retracted) to smothering three children. Investigative reporter Egginton has written a moving, sympathetic account of human tragedy, including insights into what triggers infanticide, a phenomenon which the author suggests is more prevalent than commonly believed. Recommended.
