Competent Author, Interesting Case Aug. 3 2011
By RhodeIsland 1969 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
There are three main reasons why I consider this to be better than the average true crime book. First, the author writes skillfully--there are no awkward passages or unnecessary padding. Second, there is a good balance between background, details of the case, and description of the trial. (Too often true crime writers linger over the gruesome aspects of the case, such as the crime scene and autopsy reports, and divulge irrelevant information about the principle characters, and either skip over the trial itself or offer pages and pages of redundant testimony). And third, the author takes a neutral attitude toward law enforcement--the investigators' mistakes aren't glossed over, but at the same time the author doesn't indulge in hagiographic treatment of the police.

This is a fairly straighforward, chronological account of an interesting case set in Alaska and the two trials that resulted.

Compelling and interesting book Nov. 14 2011
By J. M. Flippin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I saw this murder on 48 Hours Mystery and decided to read this account of it. Good read, very well written and a compelling story line. A twist at the end is always a plus. Did she do it? Me thinks yep. True crime readers will enjoy this one

Truly Evil Aug. 6 2011
By Shelia D. In VA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I watched a program about this case, and found it to be very interesting, and was anxious to read more about this case. I think Mechele Linehan is truly evil, and had it not been for her, Kent Leppink would be alive today. This is a fast and interesting read.

Seduction,lust and manipulation- how forensic software solves murder Sept. 14 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Seduced by Evil: The True Story of a Gorgeous Stripper-Turned-Suburban-Mom, Her Secret Past, and a Ruthless Murder
Mechelle Hughes was a mom and respectable member of her community otherwise known Bobby Jo , a very attractive former stripper masterminded the murder of her fiance, Kent Leppink with the assistance of John Carlin IV, her lover who was an ex-marine and steelworker. As a stripper ,men showered her with money and presents."Like all the dancers, Mechele had to reveal just enough of herself so the men would shower her with money and valuables , but hold back enough so they would come back for more."
Mechelle wanted money and had no misgivings about how to get it-Kent's, $ 1 million insurance policy was modified after his murder to make her and John the beneficiaries of his estate. While John's passion for her meant he would do anything to have her.
This is the story of a love triangle that ended tragically with murder.It was a cold case
which was solved after ten years ,thanks to the latest advances in forensic software technology.

A Minority Report: Update Jan. 9 2012
By R. Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an interesting read: I know I'm in the minority -- but I feel that the state of Alaska has not proven guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Michele may be manipulative, when it comes to men. Nonetheless, there is a wide chasm between using sexual attractiveness to gain advantage, and cold-blooded murder. I wish I knew how to get more, updated information, on this case. At any rate, I know I'm in the minority here! My view -- not enough evidence to convict.

When, reading this book, I can't help but to look at these sorry males [the clients & suitors of Michele] as utterly confused. Many words come to mind:
Desperately Lonesome
Financially Reckless
Just Plain Sorrowful
