Bodies of Evidence book. Interesting true-crime book about a woman who was tried for the murder of her boyfriend, and the resulting investigation turned up THREE other murders she had committed in years past- two ex-husbands and her own 19-year-old handicapped son; all of whom she had collected large amounts of life insurance for.

The reader should then give those jurors a hearty salute for the impartial, unbiased, just, and right decisions they made in both cases. If Casey Anthony did commit a crime, a Higher Law will take care of it during or after her lifetime. These two cases indirectly show the American judicial system works as it was meant to work.

These true crime stories are so horrific, it’s difficult to believe they actually . To be more precise: A suit made of human skin.

These true crime stories are so horrific, it’s difficult to believe they actually happened, or that human beings could be capable of committing such atrocities. And yet, these stories are indeed all true. Someone had cut all the limbs and head then created a ‘body suit’ from remaining part which was probably worn by the murderer for some time. Despite media attention and increased police interest every few years a perpetrator never had been found. Police suspected that there was a sexual element to the crime, since Bulger’s shoes, socks, trousers and underpants had been removed.

She Spun a Web of DeceitTo the rest of the world, Judias Buenoano was the American sucess story -- a savvy businesswoman who pulled herself up from a childhood of dire poverty. To the men in her life, she was the charming seductress -- turned cold, calcuating killer who grew richer with each of their agonizing deaths. And to her child, she was the woman who gave him life, only to take it away in a cruel act of violence.
As presented by authors Chris Anderson and Sharon McGehee in their true crime saga, BODIES OF EVIDENCE, a remarkably physically unattractive Florida woman named Judias "Judi" Goodyear began her career of poisoning the men in her life with arsenic in 1971. Her initial victim was her husband James, and her windfall from his murder was around $25,000. While there is no indication that Judi particularly disliked her victims, she clearly liked money better. Her next killing was that of Billy Ray Morris, her live in boyfriend, and by this time she was forging her victims'names to insurance policy applications and substantially increasing her payoffs. Goodyear although intelligent, cold, and cunning was also a little goofy and somewhere along the line, for reason that are unclear to me, she changed her three children's and her surnames to Buenoano, the Spanish equivalent of Goodyear.

Money was predictably getting tight as the family was living well from the insurance proceeds and denying themselves nothing, so Judi needed to strike again. This time her victim was her oldest son, 20-year-old Michael, who had always had behavior issues and who was a source of embarrassment to the perfect image Judi liked to present. Unfortunately, he didn't die from the poisoning, which merely rendered him severely disabled, so Judi and her son James had to finish him off by dumping him out of a canoe, his leg braces firmly attached, and drowning him, thereby securing more cash from the splash. Her final intended victim was her boyfriend, John Gentry.
Gentry was smart enough to stop taking the arsenic laden capsules Judi gave him daily as vitamins, and though he was hospitalized, he did not die, which irritated Judi. So she arranged to have Gentry's car dynamited. Miraculously, Gentry lived, which was the beginning of Judi's end. The rest of the book deals, interestingly and without superfluous and boring detail, with Judi's three trials and her eventual sentencing.

Goodyear/Buenano's story is fascinating and the authors move the story along well providing all of the necessary information, while not feeling the need to present every tedious available scrap. For example, in the trial segments, they summarize information when possible. And the research in BOE is outstanding.

While the writing is for the most part pretty good, there were enough substandard instances that I feel some are worth mentioning. First, the authors occasionally use the omniscient style of writing, which I heartily dislike, to bring drama to a story that already has plenty: "Detective Ted Chamberlain clicked his way down the shiny tiled lobby of the intensive care unit..." with "Detective Rick Steele striding briskly slightly behind him." This is no more than fabricated hooshwah. The authors could and should have simply had them walking, or just as well, not mentioned it at all.

As for Chamberlain, who was clearly a main source of information, there is enough hero worship involved to become irritating. The authors try to present him as a hard-bitten, dogged cop who never gives up on a case. While this may all be true, they depict him in such a way that he basically seems crude and ignorant, particularly based on quotes they attribute to him: "'That's mighty white of you, Buddy.'" and "'Look, woman,'" Chamberlain panted. "'There's nothing wrong with you.'" and "'Woman, what are you talking about'?" I don't believe that the authors know that Chamberlain actually said any of this, but while fabricating these quotes, they are presumably trying to give the reader an accurate picture of Chamberlain's personality. And it isn't pretty. "Woman??!!" Who but a clod calls women `Woman'?"

Trial witnesses only infrequently reply or respond to questions. Instead they "retort", "quip", and "rejoin", even when the word used is inappropriate, so that the authors can vary their usage. The fact that "quip", "rejoin", etc., are not synonymous with "reply" or "answer" does not seem to concern them.

Witness Mary Beverly "shuddered as she remembered Bobby Joe's easy good natured grin." Ridiculous. Did they interview her later and ask the witness why she had shuddered, if she in fact done so at all? Maybe she was cold.

And finally, in what may well be considered the climax of this ludicrous style of writing: "God save your soul", Johnston ejaculated. Several involuntary mental scenarios, none of them pleasant, resulted from my having read this sentence.

BODIES OF EVIDENCE is a fast paced, well-researched read with a plot line that is consistently interesting. The poor writing occurs often enough to be worthy of mention and for me to deduct one star in my rating, but it is not pervasive enough, especially when Anderson and McGehee are presenting the results of their extensive research, to ruin a book I found over all quite enjoyable. I believe that true crime devotees will like this book.
I must solidly agree with Tracy Mohrhauser-Christain. The typos, page errors, repeated sections, and annoying mistakes serve to make an otherwise excellent and well-written book abysmally hard to read! The errors are such that they totally throw you out of the story, leaving you reeling and thinking, Whatever happened to editors and proofreaders?? And WHY are so many Kindle eBooks like this? Set up poorly and full of horrendous typos and boo-boos and just plain stupid things?

Fact: I adore my Kindle. Sometimes I do miss being able to throw a book across the room, though!
Fact: This is a very good, suspenseful true crime read.
Fact: SOMEONE should have checked the eBook before it went live! I have seen quite a few just plain badly put-together eBooks... but this has to be one of the worst. I did push on and finish it, which is a credit to the authors, because the presentation of it is inexcusably bad.
I read the book due to the closeness I am to Pensacola. The author outlines the events well and is a fairly easy read.
Despite the mistakes and some stretched truths, it's a good book. I know because John was my uncle.
This book was poorly written. It is so full of typos and poorly composed that it made me angry. The typos were so numerous as to be unreadable. I feel ripped off.
I enjoyed the book but found many spelling errors and paragraphs repeated.
seems the book is only directed at the detective and not the story.
Narcistic reading
As a rule, I'm not a complainer when it comes to my ebooks. I know that errors can and will be made, and I generally read around them. But the translation of this particular book is, to say the least, appalling. In one section, a prior segment is repeated, requiring the reader to either reread or flip through to reach the desired, and obviously chronological, section. The spelling and punctuation errors are atrocious. I typically read my true crime as my "comfort food"; I don't expect it to be perfect, just to entertain. This kind if textual translation is, and should be, unacceptable.
