The Bone Garden: The Sacramento Boardinghouse Murders
Dorothea Puente was that rarest of murderers: a female serial killer. On a fall day in l988, police in Sacramento, California began digging up the backyard of a quaint Victorial boardinghouse run by Puente. Before the weekend was over, the police had unearthed seven badly decomposed bodies. This shocking story of murder for profit was written by William Wood, the Deputy D.A. who had earlier prosecuted Puente for drugging and robbing elderly people.

Author William P. Wood successfully prosecuted Dorothea Montalvo Puente, a serial killer, for lesser crimes years before the murders occurred. In his book, Mr. Woods openly second guesses himself and others as he chronicles the life and misdeeds of Mrs. Puente. The story is well written in an almost conversational fashion. Refreshingly for this reader, few pages are devoted to the trial itself. The most poignant lesson of the life of gracious and grandmotherly Dorothea Puente is that looks can be deceiving. If you are intrigued by serial killers or true crime stories, this is an excellent book.
