"Author Sheila Isenberg provides a fascinating look at
women'compelled todance with the masters of death'—women so
obsessed with convicted murders that they marry them, often
giving up everything else in their lives, including their
children, to fulfill their deepest fantasies. Isenberg
interviewed dozens of these women, some of their men, as
well as corrections professionals, psychiatrists, and
psychologists. The profile that emerges is of 'little girls
lost,' women who were damaged by painful childhoods who are
living in a fantasy world, in love not with a real man but
with an illusion based on denial. Isenberg's skills in
getting those women to reveal themselvs, her ability to
present them as sympathetic and understandable, and her
synthesis of the material they provided make for a
engrossing report."—Kirkus Review
