Written in Mike Ragland's true southern style, the story of a post WWII sociopath on a destructive mission is compelling reading. The story spans the late 40's through the 60's in Floyd County, Georgia and Cherokee County, Alabama. Convicted of multiple murders, Bertha's unusual trial, solid conviction, and perplexing release are testament to her unusual ability to captivate the men around her and manipulate them to do her bidding.
