The Devil's Rooming House: The True Story of America's Deadliest Female Serial Killer
The Devil’s Rooming House: The True Story of America’s Deadliest Female Serial Killer by M. William Phelps
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Did you know that “Arsenic and Old Lace” was loosely based on a true story? This is the story of Amy Archer Gilligan, America’s deadliest female serial killer, who ran an old-age home at which she sped up the resident turnover with the help of arsenic-laced lemonade. “The Devil’s Rooming House,” although a quick read, is still a chilling portrait of someone who preyed on society’s most vulnerable people.
