Black Widow

A Beautiful Woman, Two Lovers, Two Murders

Marion Collins

St. Martin's True Crime

A FALLEN OFFICER
Glenn Turner was a big strong cop, a good friend, a loyal husband, and a loving son. But Glenn died in agony—his body racked with spasms, his mind plunged into delirium. And by the time he was found dead, Glen’s wife was more than ready for his funeral.
 
A SEDUCTIVE WIDOW
Julia “Lynn” Turner, a former sheriff’s assistant and 911 operator, had a thing for men in uniform—and for their money. While detectives and forensic examiners ruled Glenn’s death the result of a virulent flu, time would tell another story. Lynn was already secretly living with Randy Thompson, a firefighter, who would meet the same excruciating death…
 
A POISONOUS TRUTH…
Driven by family who would not give up their quest for justice, a new investigation and an explosive trial eventually exposed the truth about a woman who had a way of making men die, and about a means of murder that was pure intoxicating evil.
