Exclusive Interview With The Killer!

“An exceptional book by an exceptional writer.”—Kathryn Casey

It started with a horrifying discovery in a self-storage facility: the abandoned bodies of three plastic-wrapped infants, one of them reduced to a mummy. Dianne Odell, a mother of eight children, admitted the babies were hers. She claimed that they’d died of natural causes; that she’d been impregnated by her father when young; that her own mother had forced her into teen prostitution. Would her stories win her the mercy her babies never received? Or would she pay the price for committing the worst crime a mother can commit?
