Review of Wicked Wives by Gus Pelagatti

The Wicked Wives . . . . A novel based on a true story
Gus Pelagatti

This book is based on 5 women; Lillian Stoner the opium addict, Eva Russo the gambler, Joanna Napoli a gift shop owner, Rose Grady the "kiss of death widow and Sadie Lamb who runs a boarding house. What do they all have in common ?? Sex, love of money, all widows  and in love with Giorgio Disipio a local tailor. He convinces these women to kill of their husbands for insurance money. From there they start a death ring.  It took a few years and a lot of work but these women and Giorgio went down !!

This book was set in the 1930's. I fell in love from the first page. It is filled with suspense. I love reading and watching about the mob and this one was right up there ! It was different to see women doing the killing rather than the men! I think that made it more exciting! ! ! It has it all! Suspense, crime, sex, drugs and court house drama! I highly recommend this read, exceptionally if you like true crime. Its a book you want to start with early morning coffee and finish up at night with a glass of wine.

I would rate this has a 5 star !
