About this title


The true story of a preacher's daughter who became a serial killer chronicles the transformation of Blanche Taylor Moore from an innocent 1950s "sweater girl" into a cold-blooded killer who murdered her husbands with arsenic. 35,000 first printing.

From Library Journal:

Blanche Taylor Moore was pretty, vivacious, and sexy. Men loved her, and she appeared to love them. Too bad she was so unlucky in love. Man after man fell ill and died, in spite of her devoted nursing. Schutze draws a compelling, chilling portrait of a woman spoon-feeding poison to husbands and lovers who were dying in agony. The book is not only a fine portrait of a madwoman, it is an indictment of the hospitals where the truth was routinely ignored. There are heroes, though, in the detectives who doggedly uncovered the truth and the lawyers who fought to see Blanche convicted. There are also numerous victims, including the sons bilked out of their inheritance after Blanche convinced them that their father wanted her to have his money. Schutze also gives a good feel for the small North Carolina towns where the story unfolded, and he carries the reader through the investigation and trial without ever losing momentum. Highly recommended for any true crime collection and for larger public libraries.
