It galled luscious, golden-haired Alma Chrysler to be tied to a husband as stodgy and unexciting as Norman. She didn't think a man should spend his evenings tinkering with a car.

Variety was the spice of love, Almla believed, and proved her theory with Scotty, Jim, Bob, and others she could hardly remember.

Now it was Ward Green and he was the best of the lot -- a slave to

"Kill Me A Husband" is the tawdry story of Alma Chrysler, a modern-day Eve who took more than one bite from the apple. She's the type of no-good tramp that Orrie Hitt would write about.

The Book took me to years when James Hadley Chase were the only fictions I read ;) !!!

They had a Woman, A Lover , A Cruel Husband, A Motive, Detective and NO GPS , NO Mobile Records, NO Hi-Fi Forensics, .

All these were enough to Churn out a good Pulp Fiction !!!

This Book has a A Woman unsatisfied with her husband, involved in many affairs outside her marriage, who, finally creates a plot to get her husband killed.

Out of all the men she has been enticing , she chooses a weakling to do the job.
