She was, of course, anything but honest, and the only simple thing about her was her single-minded determination to marry this man and then kill him, slowly and carefully, leaving her a wealthy widow, able to take care of the one she truly loved.

Ask for a copy from the Information Desk and come to the discussion. Refreshments will be served.
