Cold Storage....

In May 2003, an Arizona man who'd bought dozens of sealed boxes at an auction of unclaimed property made a horrifying discovery: the bodies of three plastic-wrapped infants, one of which had become mummified over the years. Police traced them to Dianne Odell, 50, a mother of eight children, who admitted the babies were hers but claimed that they'd died of natural causes.

Justice Deferred....

In 1989, police had found the remains of a long-dead infant in a suitcase in the trunk of a car Odell had abandoned. The statute of limitations on manslaughter had saved her then from prosecution. She maintained that the fetus was the product of a rape by her father, and stillborn.

Baby-Killer's Fate....

Odell said her own domineering mother had forced her into teen prostitution and murdered what she viewed as bastard children. Both parents were dead and unable to contradict her. Would Odell's stories sway the jury and buy her the mercy her babies were never granted? Or would she be forced to face the consequences of bringing innocent lives into the world - only to end them in cold blood. Download and start listening now!

    " Well written book my Phelps on the case of Diane Odell who carried 3 dead babies with her for close to 20 years. "

    " Interesting true crime about infantcide. The mother accused changed her story 3-4 times and the police weren't sure if they could charge her. "

    " Very hard to read for anybody, but more so if you are a parent. Chilling and well written, but not the best by MWP. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Don | 11/16/2011

    " This is a close-up look at some severe disfunction. Both sad and infuriating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 8/19/2011

    " This book's plot takes place in Arizona, NY, and in familiar Rome, PA. This is a must-read for my Facebook friends, and for those I grew up with in Northeastern PA! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiphanie | 2/10/2010

    " Thought provoking book. Because it was non-fiction it really had me wondering what was going on in this woman's head. I was left still not knowing when I finished but could not put it down. Well written. "

    " Interesting and well-researched story, but Phelps' writing style is a bit dry for my taste. "

    " I was interested in the story but the book could have been half as long as it was. I just wanted the author to get on with it. "
