Would you kill for love? True-crime master and Wyoming native Ron Franscell tells the grisly story of a loving couple who murdered at least four people, and live happily ever after–while cops try for decades to piece together a petrifying tale of murder and secrets. The appalling details are made even more vivid by the author’s familiarity with the Wyoming times and places that formed the backdrop of his national bestseller “The Darkest Night.”

Ron Franscell is one of the finest true crime writers I’ve ever read. At once horrific and stupefying, ‘Alice & Gerald: A Homicidal Love Story’ will catapult you into a world of narcissistic impulse and terrifying consequence.”
—CRAIG JOHNSON, New York Times bestselling author of the Walt Longmire Mysteries and Wyomingite

2019 Oklahoma Book Festival @ Boathouse District
Sep 21 all-day

Ron will participate in the 2019 Oklahoma Book Festival. He’ll appear with his newest true crime book “Alice & Gerald: A Homicidal Love Story,” at a presentation and book-signing event. (Details TBA)

It tells the grisly story of a loving couple from Fremont County who murdered at least four people, and live happily ever after–while cops try for decades to piece together a petrifying tale of murder and secrets. The appalling details are made even more vivid by the author’s familiarity with the Wyoming times and places that formed the backdrop of his national bestseller “The Darkest Night.”

“Alice & Gerald: A Homicidal Love Story” is going to be the best true crime book you’ll read this year, or in just about any other year. Author Ron Franscell combines exhaustive research and plenty of literary talent to deliver the classic saga of four brutal murders and the decades-long efforts of dogged investigators to bring the married perpetrators to justice. In the process, he reminds the rest of us who write in this genre how it ought to be done.”
—JEFF GUINN, NY Times bestselling author of Manson and The Road to Jonestown
