Mrs Smith Reads A Wild Surge of Guilty Passion by Ron Hansen, CBR3 #24

Stories of infidelity and murder have been fodder for screenwriters since the movie business began, but the 1927 case of Ruth Snyder and Judd Gray provided the back story for two of the finest film noir ever made, Double Indemnity and The Postman Always Rings Twice. Ron Hansen retells the story of their illicit passion and the cold-blooded murder of Ruth’s husband Albert, in a highly-researched, though fictionalized account in A Wild Surge of Guilty Passion.
