Jana’s definitive book on this 1931 murder case that riveted the nation. First published by Simon & Schuster and now reissued by Poisoned Pen Press. The Trunk Murderess: Winnie Ruth Judd never fails to fascinate audiences. While history said Winnie Ruth Judd was a murderer and a butcher, Jana’s exhaustive investigation shows she was neither. Arizona took 40 years of her life for a crime she didn’t commit. It appeals to anyone interested in crime, women’s rights, mystery, history, fairness, intrigue and justice. This is the book was awarded the state’s highest literary prize. It was selected as the ONEBOOKAZ by the State Library. Murder and mystery don’t get more compelling than this story.
