The Killer's Wife by,Bill Floyd.What if the person you were married to and having a child with turned out to be a cold-blooded serial killer?What do you say to the victim's families?What do you say when they ask how you could not know?

What I'm Reading Now Non-Fiction...

The Book is "Flim-Flam Man,A True Family History"by,Jennifer Vogel.This is an interesting story about a con mans life and the effect on his family,But it is extremely wordy for instance the first sentence in the book is 27 words long.To me it just doesn't flow you find yourself skimming through alot to get to the meat of the story.2 Stars.
