James gives an overview of the book:

Tom O'Donnell had been living off the graces of Jane Alexander for six years. He regaled her with his wit, charm, and tales of oversea adventure. He also borrowed money extensively for home business operations and future investments. But Tom O'Donnell was more than just a con man. He would do anything for money--even murder Jane's 88-year-old aunt. After he fled with over $10,000 of her money, Jane was determined to put him behind bars. This is her story. * Includes 8 pages of photographs* Electrifying true crime with all the right ingredients: sex, money, murder and a happy ending* One of the few true crime books written from the victim's point of view* Inspired by her experience, Jane Alexander has created an organization to help other victims find justice
