“The Wicked Wives” by Gus Pelagatti

“The Wicked Wives” by Gus Pelagatti

“The Wicked Wives” is an intriguing work of fiction based on actual events that took place in Philadelphia in the late 1930’s. A man named Giorgio Disipio is running an insurance fraud scheme that involves assisting wives in killing their husbands in order to collect on their life insurance policies. This book takes the reader through several of the murders and the District Attorney’s investigation and efforts to bring the perpetrators to justice.

The author has done a great job of bringing the story to life. The main characters are well developed and you can just feel the tension between the conspirators as the circle of wives grows and the law starts to get closer. There is some sexual content so it may not be suitable for younger readers but if you’re like me and enjoy the lesser known bits of history I think you will really enjoy this book. This one get a 4 out of 4 star rating from me.

Happy Reading!
