From the Back Cover

"Diana Britt Franklin has done a remarkable job of researching the life, death, and crimes of one of America's most dangerous femme fatales, Anna Marie Hahn, whose deceptively delicate blonde beauty, home cooking and 'loving care' led at least a half-dozen Ohioans to their graves. Franklin is at her best when she describes justice in the 1930s, allowing readers to virtually transcend the passage of time. As she describes Ann's sensational death penalty trial, it's easy to feel that seventy years have slipped away and you are there. True crime readers will want to read 'The Good-bye Door'!"

-- Ann Rule, author of "Heart Full of Lies," "Worth More Dead," and "Green River, Running Red." "A riveting tale almost too evil to believe! In absorbing detail, Diana Franklin has brought this crafty female serial killer back to life -- and death." -- Robert K. Ressler, criminologist and former FBI criminal profiler.
