Exciting to read and thoroughly researched! “Gangster Women and the Criminals they Loved” by Susan McNicoll



True Crime: The Amazing Mrs. Livesey by Freda Marnie Nicholls

cover95194-mediumI am a True Crime buff, and thought it would be interesting to read a story about a woman who was the criminal.

Mrs. Livesey took on several identities through the years, and always seemed to thrive for the most part, even when she was captured several times.

You wanted to dislike her, because she hurt a lot of people and put them in bad conditions by stealing money and valuables from them, but she was just so freaking charming!!!

Clearly she was charming in real life and not just on the pages of this book, as she seemed to be able to easily con even the sharpest of people.

Her final trial towards the end of the book does get a little bogged down, as the transcript repeats many things you have already read, but DO NOT SKIM, because you will get the BEST laugh ever over one conversation that took place in court! 🙂

I received this book on behalf of NetGalley.

It will be released October 1, 2016 and is available for pre-order now.
