She Offered Her Body. . .
Jimmy Joste was a powerhouse in the oil and gas industry, but he was a weakling when it came to his gorgeous, athletic, longtime lover, Rhonda Glover. Addicted to her sexual prowess and madly in love, Joste gave her homes, cars, cash, and a $350,000 engagement ring.
. . .But Left Him As A Corpse
Their fifteen years of passion and excess ended the day Rhonda drove directly from a shooting range to the Austin home they once shared. After pumping ten bullets into him from a Glock 9mm, she stood over Joste's blood-splattered body and shot him six more times--twice below the waist.
The Ultimate Girl Gone Wild
According to Rhonda, Joste was violent, abusive, and threatened her life. Here, for the first time, are Rhonda Glover's shocking stories of drug-crazed devil worship and sexual perversity. But in a packed courtroom, prosecutors presented shocking evidence that beautiful Rhonda didn't act in self-defense--it was hot-blooded murder!

Edgar Award-winner Barer's (Mom Said Kill) latest is a sordid and depressing tale of dysfunctional relationships, drug and alcohol abuse, mental illness, and the impotence of the Texas justice system to effectively address such problems. Barer presents the tale in a "just the facts, ma'am" style, following the fate of former rodeo star Rhonda Glover, whose physical attractiveness and lack of sexual inhibition were apparently so compelling to oil entrepreneur Jimmy Joste that he overlooked numerous alarming signs of her mental illness during the course of their relationship. He was found, partially decomposed, in his home in 2004. Charged with his murder, Glover was prevented by the state from claiming insanity and instead argued, unconvincingly, that she acted in self-defense. Barer's research is impressive, including diligent exposition of secondary subjects and a post-conviction interview wherein Glover offers her side of the story, but his stubborn chronology and detached tone saps the narrative of tension. The story lacks an organizing principle and, for lack of a better term, a soul. This lone star state "Shakespearean tragedy" has all the emotional impact of the nightly news. Photos.
