Unbiased and Good

Prior to reading this book my only exposure to Aileen Wuernos was Biography and American Justice on A & E. I found the book both informative and heartbreaking. One wonders how Aileen could have become anything other than what she turned out to be. It seems that from them moment of her birth to her execution she was on a collision course with disaster. After reading this book I have no desire to see "Monster". I don't feel that anymore can be said, or that it could be said better than it was done in this book. If you are interested in Aileen Wuernos' life rather than the sensationalism her crimes became, then I highly recommend this book.

Very Detailed

You will not find a more exhaustively reseached & readable account of Aileen Wornuos' exploits ! A very good read- highly recommended !

Excellent book.

I really do recommend this book for people interested in the Wuornos case. Lethal Intent is a highly detailed book, starting from the very beginning of Aileen's tragic life. The book is great for trying to understand why Aileen done what she did, and in an unbiased way. Russell gives you the facts, and lets you come to your own conclusions. The story made me laugh, made me cry, and often made me angry because of the way Aileen was treated. The book is also complete with some excellent pictures of Aileen and her family. I couldn't put the book down once I started. All in all a wonderfully written book!

If you want to read a book, that you can't put down.......

This one is it. While in the early stages of reading this book, I went to see "Monster". I was glad to be able to get back to a book that told a thorough story, instead of a rushed account of a tortured soul. Sue Russell did an excellent job of researching the story of Aileen Wuornos. From the begining, it grabbed the reader and never let go. I am a fan of true crime and haven't been able to get my hands on a good book for a long time now. Even Ann Rule was putting me to sleep. Without going into the life of Wuornos and giving details of the story, I will tell you this...if you like true crime...if you want to read a good this one.

Exhaustive Research on a Woman Serial Killer

After seeing author Sue Russell on the biography channel (A & E), I decided to give the book another try. It's hard to read about the repugnant, vicious Aileen Wournos. Russell painstakinglyresearched this woman's life, from childhood to execution. Wournos's saga is a blueprint for disaster; she was raised in a house of raging dysfunction. She was a boisterous child full of spunk. That energy evolved into frustration, anger, prostitution and substance abuse even before Aileen ran away from home and hit the streets. This book is intriguing, but rather lengthy - 557 pages of in depth true crime reading.
