“Not just a story of getting away with murder, ALICE & GERALD explores the feckless, degenerate underbelly of a place on the margins of America. The landscape and attitudes of a wild, coarse place play an indisputable role in this sordid, never-told tale—a place Ron Franscell knows intimately. Alice and Gerald’s lives and secrets, ultimately entangled in a marriage that has lasted longer than most, will unravel in this unflinching, atmospheric, detailed account by one of America’s most respected narrative nonfiction writers.” —Amazon.com

Would you kill for love? True-crime master 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.”
“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
