Death by Cyanide: The Murder of Dr. Autumn Klein
Paula Reed WardCloth: $19.95
Death By Cyanide shows Ward at the top of her form. She has tracked down every single aspect of the lurid case-and illuminated the human beings behind it. . . . A master class in coverage of courtroom procedure, the preponderance of evidence will leave you with no doubt that the guilty verdict was correct.
[Ward] presents the ins and outs of a homicide investigation and trial as if they were a puzzle, one that investigators put together piece by piece to its satisfying end.
Meticulously reported, Death by Cyanide is a gripping page-turner-a sensational and shocking story that will satisfy any true crime fan. But Paula Reed Ward, a wonderful storyteller, raises the bar: this is a respectful, contemplative book that fully transports. I won’t soon forget Dr. Autumn Klein.
