SO DEADLY FAIR by Gertrude Walker


Email this review


The fascination of the flesh, and its concomitant corruption, for the story of Walter Johnson, as he meets up with Elizabeth Frazer, in Minnesota, where she tries to hang her murder of her husband on him. Wanting her, expensive as it may be, Johnson escapes with her to the west, keeps her for three years until she leaves him, framed with her murder. Even with no corpus delicti to establish, Johnson is convicted as she had planned. Paroled ten years later, he by chance finds her again, now married to wealth, and imposes revenge and retribution..... For the some that like it hot, this electrifies rather than edifies.
