"Wicked Wives" is based on the true story of the 1938 Philadelphia murder scandals in which seventeen wives were arrested for murdering their husbands. Mastermind conspirator Giorgio DiSipio, a stunning lothario and local tailor who preys upon disenchanted and unfaithful wives, convinces twelve of them to kill their spouses for insurance money. The murder conspiracy is very successful until one lone assistant D.A., Tom Rossi, uncovers the plot and brings the perpetrators to justice. "Wicked Wives" is a story made for Hollywood, combining murder, corruption, treachery, love, lust and phenomenal detail as it vividly captures Depression-era Philadelphia.
Really good book. I ended up going to be later than usual just because I couldn't put it down but I don't mind because this book is very good and very well written.You can tell that Gus Pelagatti did his homework with this wonderful book. I will be reading this one again and I will be lending this to my husband to read. If you like books like this then I highly recommend this one.
I give this 5 out of 5
