    For many years, I lived in the Minneapolis and loved visiting Duluth On one of our visits, when it was one hundred degrees below zero, I am not kidding, we visited Glensheen, the mansion turned museum of the millionaire Congdon family During the tour, they would not discuss any details of the double murder of the heiress, Elizabeth Congdon or her nurse, Velma Pietela I am not sure if it was out of courtesy because the manse was donated to the U of MN who ran the tours, or legal implications, but it always left me wondering We were standing on the edge of a famous crime scene, but no one would talk about it Yes, Virginia, there are two elephants in the room, dead elephants, but no one is talking about them Aren t the chandeliers delightful Sharon Darby Hendry must have worn hip waders to read through all of the transcripts 4000 pages from multiple trials that lasted months She also thoroughly researched background information I appreciated her level of attention to detail without boring the reader with it She sifted carefully The book is about than just the initial murders, but the life of Marjorie, Elizabeth s adopted daughter, who went on to commit many other crimes, always lying and manipulating and getting less than what justice would require.If this had been a work of fiction, I would have put it down after fifty pages, but the amazing thing is that Marjorie really lived and really did all of these things, and probably things A quick internet search shows that she is still alive somewhere That is even creepier If you are into profiling, mental health issues, Minnesota history, or lives of the rich and famous, you will enjoy this book.

    How on earth did Marjorie Congdon get away with so much Plotting her mother s murder, arson, lying, coercing men to commit crimes, arson, feeding drugs to Helen Hagen at her last meal, etc etc I did go to see the musical based on this book, and while I was very impressed with the actress who played Marjorie, I was appalled at what a nasty person she is I was fascinated with the portrait of Glensheen, and I had to get a few books out of the library so I could see the architecture and the Arts and Crafts furnishings It just goes to prove that the rich may be able to afford gorgeous things, but they might not be nice people.Yikes And it all happened right here in Minnesota

    This story never ends To this day, this woman is still stirring up trouble and doing what she does bestlie, cheat, steal, kill She had everything a girl could ask for, and it just wasn t enough Evil Black hearted Selfish Manipulative If the facts presented in this book are to be believed, this is a woman I d have no interest in ever meeting, unless it was to tell her shame on you GREAT read.

    Anyone from Minnesota needs to read this one.

    1.5 stars This is an interesting story, and it is very close to home The nurse that was murdered lived near my grandparents This made me really want to like this book However, the writing is awful Very cliched, undisciplined, and seemingly unedited At one point, the author goes off on a tangent to talk about a detectives sparkling eyes Another time, she takes pains to point out that a daughter witness was chubby and unmarried I do not know why this was brought up mid testimony, but it was there She also doesn t seem to know how to correctly use the words affect effect That is nearly unforgivable.

    It was extremely hard to put down, non stop drama that easily sucked you in to the very end Story about one of the adopted children of Elisabeth Congdon, who ultimately ended up being murdered, who had a husband that was found guilty of murdering his mother in law for money Was Marjorie Congdon the real culprit of the murder and arson stories throughout her life The controversy will haunt everyone.

    This is a must read for anyone who grew up in Minnesota I was shocked at the story and was surprised by the legal system Unbelievable This would make a great movie because I don t know how someone gets away with multiple murders and is living out their retirement In Arizona.

    Well written recounting of the events and disasters of Marjorie Congdon s life After reading this book it gives one pause as to whether justice is ever served It is amazing that this woman got away with killing so many people, 3, and starting over 40 arson fires and passing hundreds of bad checks and scamming so many people for large amounts of cash I wonder how much her inheritance and wealth had to do with her freedom, obviously hiring the best lawyers is a big help, but there were SO MANY things she did.

  9. says:

    This is a true story about an heiress who is an arsonist, and, probably, a murderer It is interesting to me, what makes someone a serial criminal And this woman, an heiress, even what could motivate her It is also interesting that she was tried for crimes committed while she lived in Duluth, MN, and Ajo, Arizona, both of which I ve visited Not especially well written, though And the crucial scenes in the book the murders are fabricated.

  10. says:

    It s been awhile since I ve visited the Glensheen The story of Marjorie Caldwell is appalling She was given everything in life including millions of dollars and all she was capable of was lying, cheating, arson, manipulation, and murder I can t believe that she kept getting by with killing others, insurance fraud and arson She sounds like an awful person I m curious to know where she s at now and what else she has done since this book was written.
