This book was originally published in 1998 under the title “Confessions of an American Black Widow”, it was re-released in 2013 as an e-book with the title “Bitch on Wheels”. I have the 1998 version in paperback, the 2013 version as an ebook, mainly because I didn’t realize they were the same book. M. William Phelps wrote a foreword for the ebook version, a fact I find appropriate since I was reading his book at the same time I was reading this.

We come into the story at the death of Sharon Nelson’s third husband, we then go back in time to her first husband, who Sharon didn’t kill, apparently she decided it was better if her exes were dead. She had her lover kill husband number 2 and 3, while at the same time keeping him as her lover. He didn’t seem to want to marry Sharon, of course that would have meant leaving his wife.

Gregg Olsen does his usual stellar job. His in dept recounting of the lives of the people involved makes one feel like they know them, yet his detailed reported doesn’t drag and is his style of writing is very readable. Gregg Olsen could re-write the phone book and I would read it. Well maybe not. My only complaint was the order the account was told was rather confusing, we kept going back and forth in time. Still a worthwhile read. ( )

Nothing particularly shocking in the first book..it's really just us getting to know Sharon. ( )

Book description
As seen on TV's Deadly Women series, this is the true story of Colorado murderess Sharon Lynn Nelson who conspired with her mountain man lover Gary Adams to kill two of her husbands. That's right TWO.

When the body of 45-year-old Glen Harrelson was found in his Denver home, police tried to contact his wife, but soon they made a startling realization. She had played the part of grieving widow once before: her previous husband also had died a mysterious accidental death...

In a true story as shocking as any fiction, Bitch on Wheels is the amazing account of Sharon Lynn Nelson, a wild, beautiful preacher's wife who couldn't get enough-enough sex, enough money, or enough of her rugged "Mountain Man" lover, Gary Adams. Nelson was so consumed by greed that she convinced Adams to killed two of her three husbands in order to cash in on their insurance policies.

Here is a compelling portrait of a woman driven by the darkest forces to mate, then kill--an American black widow who ultimately got snared in her own twisted web...
