My Mother, a Serial Killer

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

A gripping and shocking story of a serial killer mother, and the brave daughter who brought her to justice. Dulcie Bodsworth was the unlikeliest serial killer. She was loved everywhere she went, and the townsfolk of Wilcannia, which she called home in the late 1950s, thought of her as kind
and caring. The officers at the local police station found Dulcie witty and charming, and looked forward to the scones and cakes she generously baked and delivered for their morning tea.

That was one side of her. Only her daughter Hazel saw the real Dulcie. And what she saw terrified her.

Dulcie was in fact a cold, calculating killer who, by 1958, had put three men in their graves - one of them the father of her four children, Ted Baron - in one of the most infamous periods of the state's history. She would have got away with it all had it not been for Hazel.

Written by award-winning journalist Janet Fife-Yeomans together with Hazel Baron, My Mother, A Serial Killer is both an evocative insight into the harshness of life on the fringes of Australian society in the 1950s, and a chilling story of a murderous mother and the courageous daughter who testified against her and put her in jail.

Excellent read

Very absorbing; interesting; can’t put down;

My Mother, A Serial Killer

It really troubles me that Drucy and Harry didn’t get longer sentences. Especially amazing that she wasn’t sentenced to life without parole. Hazel is one strong lady.

Greatly Enjoyed!!

You never know what you are going to get with bargain books, but with a long trip ahead of me to a family Christmas and my new resolution to give up Facebook for 2019, I found this book and was interested from the summary.
This is a very well written book. You almost feel like you are watching with your own eyes what Hazel and her siblings were going through. You feel her anxiety when she decides to tell her secrets and the relief when her mother is sentenced.
I read this book, start to finish, in two days and I’m almost sad I finished it so quickly.
I very much recommended this book to anyone who enjoys true-crime stories, you will not be disappointed.
