Very passionate review. I have to admit you made a point with the title, at first it didn't appeal to me, but after reading your words I'm really curious about the book so I will definitely read it. Thank you for such a good review!

Wonderful, well thought review with lots of detail. This book sounds like a great read. I've always found historical crime tales very interesting, whether or not I agree with the crime committed. I have to agree on the title of the novel, for the fact I did not find interest in reading this until I read your review.

Well done to both the author and the reviewer!. I enjoyed reading the review. I am sure I will love to read this story which is simply fascinating a great plunge in the phycology of these women and the motives behind their actions. It sure feels as an intriguing plot.

Thanks everyone for the feedback! One of the most interesting parts of this book was knowing it was based on a true story. After I read the book, I looked up the information online. The true story is just as wild as the fictional one!

The book was great although it had a lot
of twist in the end. But I think the author
mistakenly did not do well with the title.
Any one who hasn't read the book and
hears the title would think it's a romance genre kind of book. I would rate the book 3out of 4star's
.Great book

This story made me cry its just a horrible thing that you gonna kill your husband just to make money out of it. I really2x like the content of this story the fact that its a true based happenings and i had learned something from it. I'm gonna wish to all the wives out there to love your husband and not try to exchange him to money. Being loved by your husband back is heaven. I feel so happy when my husband told me how he loved me that much and cares a lot to me. Money is just for past time but the love of a person is for a lifetime. So please put this into your head that no matter how rich you are if you have no partner you can't experienced the real meaning of happiness. So better buy this book coz you gonna love it so much. :D

the story of "the wicked wives" depicts the true happenings of the husband wife relation in the contemporary world where an interested party can entice the wife to terminate her husband's noble life so as to access the insurance is really disgusting.
