The New York Times–bestselling author of Shattered Innocence reveals the story of a two-time widow leading a double life in this true crime exposé.
Miriam Giles ran away to Colorado to escape her violent past. But this seductively charismatic widow had a dark side that could never stay buried. After finding the “sugar daddy” she was looking for in Alan Helmick, her new marriage seemed happy. Then, two years later, Alan met a gruesome fate.
Returning home from errands, Miriam found him lying in a pool of blood. Miriam showed police a cryptic note warning her to "run, run, run." But Miriam was no distraught housewife. She was a master manipulator who always stayed one step ahead of her unwitting partner. Then her crimes caught up with her once and for all.
