This is a true crime story about a woman who marries a man only for his money and what he could give her in material goods. Rebecca Salcedo is now 46 years old, but at the time she met and married Bruce Cleland, her unfortunate husband, she was about 28. She had met him at a flea mart and he was immediately smitten with her, as many men and even women were. (She had the reputation of being a party girl from the time she was very young, and grew up in an extremely dysfunctional family. Her mother ...more

Pretty good

rendering of a twisted and convoluted life, lives rather; the unmitigated greed of this woman and her cohorts is mind boggling. The only doubt I have is whether she got what she deserved, then again the hope she no doubt held towards her second trial and subsequent conviction, provides a little satisfaction, but not nearly enough. I prefer more background information on individuals in a true crime telling, this narrative lacked in that regard.

I enjoyed the story telling about how she met Bruce and the back stories of Bruce and Rebecca. I loved Bertha Awana. I think she was fantastic.

I did not like that the case and the court were too long and could be very boring. The only exception being Rebecca post-murder and her arrest and also the prosecution's case.

I enjoyed the book honestly.

True murder

This woman was out for the money and her poor husband loved her so much he couldn't see it. He was very naive right until the end.
