Poisoned Vows

Front Cover
Macmillan, Sep 15, 1995 - True Crime - 320 pages
Jill Coit was a voluptuous, dark-skinned beauty--as sultry and unfathomable as the Louisiana bayou where she was born and raised. But beneath the glamour of the one-time fashion model was a woman of insatiable desire who used her cover-girl looks to prey on eligible, well-meaning men.

Married ten times, she vowed her undying love. But her life was a series of betrayals involving flagrant adultery, and even bigamy. She battled to get her hands on her ex-husbands' back accounts, family inheritances and valuables.

Across at least five states, she used more than a dozen names to spin a tangled web of marriages and money. But was she on a heartless quest for more and more wealth--one that led to the cold-blooded murder of two of her husbands and attempts on the life of another? And did she go so far as to try to involve her own son in a plot to murder husband number nine?
