9781854791139: Poisoned Blood: True Story of Marie Hilley, Cold-blooded Killer

Marie Hilley's life progressed in an unexceptional way until the day she started to poison her husband. For four years the crime went undiscovered, until she attempted to murder her daughter. The author takes the reader on a trail that includes several identities, a new marriage and a fake suicide.

From Publishers Weekly:

The tale of a woman with a genius for deception, this is one of the most riveting true-crime stories in memory. Audrey Marie Hilley grew up in Alabama as a pampered child, feeling that she was entitled to the best; when her middle-class lifestyle after marriage and two children did not provide funds for the best, she kited checks and then poisoned her husband for his insurance money and attempted to poison her daughter. Arrested, she jumped bail and assumed a new identity, that of Robbi Hannon, met and married a second husband and moved with him to New Hampshire. Evidently bored with that identity, she left temporarily and returned as her "twin sister," Teri, announcing that Robbi had died; the disguise apparently fooled her husband, but not all of the people she had known as Robbi. She was eventually unmasked, returned to Alabama for trial, found guilty of murder and imprisoned in 1983. The saga of this cold, cruel and calculating person, told expertly by former Providence Journal-Bulletin reporter Ginsburg, is memorable. First serial to Good Housekeeping; Literary Guild alternate.

From Library Journal:

Marie Hilley, seemingly an ordinary housewife, was convicted of the poisoning murder and attempted murder of her husband and daughter, respectively. She skipped bail and lived as a fugitive for three years. Hilley was the subject of R. Robin McDonald's Black Widow ( LJ 9/15/86). Ginsburg updates the story about Hilley, who died after a 1987 prison escape, and provides more details about her convoluted fugitive existence. Her penchant for deception in all things led to her capture. (Neither book offers any psychological explanation.) About a fascinating case, this account is recommended for crime collections lacking Black Widow . Literary Guild alternate. Gregor A. Preston, Univ. of California Lib., Davis
