Cincinnati heart surgeon Darryl Sutorious was spellbound, convinced he'd found the perfect wife. With bewitching hazel eyes and exquisite clothes, Dante Britteon seemed to have stepped straight out of Vogue and into his arms. But their honeymoon didn't last long. Beneath Dante's china-doll facade lured a sceretive, dangerous woman, a ma

Instead of writing a review I think I'll use my updates. They say it all.

"Very confusingly written, lots of jumping around but I want to know more so I will keep at it." 2 comments
44.0% "Aargh this is so annoying. Nearly half of the book done and the only thing I've read is what others think of Dante. I think I am going to speed read this, something I hardly ever do."

Okay to explain why I did not like this book.
The author thinks her readers are dumb and cannot think for themselves. Sh

Interesting story, awful copy editing

If you can make it through the countless typos, this is an interesting profile of an evil woman. Jones did a good job recounting the trial and interviewing some of the many unfortunate enough to cross this murderer's path. But the lack of a copy editor is more than a distraction; it truly detracts from this book. If I was Jones, I'd demand the publisher fix it ASAP.

Jones always finds fascinating cases, but the writing is sloppy. Her books lack polish and she rambles.
Apr 17, 2016 Megan rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
The writing style of this book is not very good. Chapters start and end abruptly, and are far too short. There's no reason to have 90 chapters, especially when the chapter division seem so random. Jones tries to craft a gripping, coherent narrative out of rumor, innuendo, and gossip, but comes up short. She doesn't seem to have the writing chops to pull off a strong story from vagueness. Indeed, the writing actually improves near the end, when Jones finally begins talking about the trial. I ...more

Character assassination for a quick and dirty buck.

A poor quality writer writing sensationalist texts seems to be employed by some people who equate their loss of money or whatever with the death of a person. So anything goes for demonizing a person. This way you can find intimate moments with no living witnesses just like in a cheap romance. Simply put a good resolution camera could have not captured the god-like eye of the delusional author.

Great Read

I chose this book, in part because it's written by Aphrodite Jones. I love her show and wanted to see if she is as good a writer as she is at telling the stories on her show. I discovered she is!
The other reason I wanted to read this one was the actual story. Excellent story and written in a way that is simple to follow yet keeps you interested and entertained.

I read this b/c one of the inspectors who works for me was involved in investigating this case. I was not living in Cincinnati during this time period, but all the locations are familiar, places I know of or have been to. Weird. Hard to believe she caught so many men in her web--if even half the stories are true, she's completely insane and downright creepy. Glad she is in prison!

Scary Stuff

Ms Jones reporting of this crime provides great entertainment but the poor editing in Della's Web reduced the stars I wanted to give this book. Good writing - poor editing for spelling errors.

This story initially intrigued me because it was an acquaintance's family, however this book wasn't well-written and rather uninteresting. The author added very little substance to what could have been read in the newspaper.

It's good

Different from other book of type. You get a lot of suppositions and backstory. And I'm still left wondering who killed the old lady.

A so-so retelling of the true story of a woman who murdered her husband and manipulated many more men.

Someone gave me this book claiming it was great to read. But so far I'm bored ,but I am only on chapter three so maybe it will get better.

Eh. Just okay. Researched and written well enough, but the killer was so evil she almost seemed like a cartoon after awhile.

I found this after watching a night time crime show. Very in depth story about the murderer Della Sutorius.
