Maybe this just isn't my genre, but I found myself mired in detail that I didn't really need. Often I found myself flipping ahead to get to the point. The fact that her first husband conveniently died on the one day that his old insurance and new insurance policies overlapped, is given equal weight as the name and actions of someone sent to find a doctor.

Like other reviewers, I found the author's bias toward women, in particular, unpalatable. He makes reference to Belle and Ray going to town looking like "Jack Sprat and his wife" and says that based on her appearance, it's obvious that the draw must have been her good land, even after using quotes that shows she definitely had a physical draw on many of the men she seduced.

If you like really detailed yet biased biographies, you may find this appealing.

It must have taken some strength not to title this, "Hell's Belle."
