Description:

To neighbors, she was the brave single mother... Raising her five kids alone in a rundown section of Sacramento, Theresa Cross Knorr seemed like the ultimate survivor. But her youngest daughter, 16-year-old Terry, told police another story: one almost too terrible to believe. But accused of imprisoning her children in a house of horrors... According to Terry, Theresa-no longer the petite brunette she once was-had turned insanely jealous of her pretty eldest daughters and enlisted the help of her two teenaged sons in a vicious campaign against their sisters. Of beating, torturing and killing her own flesh and blood... Terry's gruesome tale told how Theresa had drugged, handcuffed and shot 16-year-old Suesan, allowing her wounds to fester, until the day she ordered her sons to burn their sister alive. Next, Terry said Theresa severely beat 20-year-old Sheila and then locked her in a stifling broom closet, so that when the girl finally starved to death, her brothers dumped her body in the same desolate mountain range where they had cremated Suesan. She could be one of the most evil murderesses of our time... It took Terry five agonizing years to convince authorities to investigate her grisly accounts of burning flesh, starvation and torture...of a mother from hell, so sadistic and so deranged, she had become her children's own executioner.

Wensley Clarkson, a British tabloid writer, is the author of more than two dozen true-crime novels and quickie celebrity biographies. In his tell-all book, Death at Every Stop: The True Story of Alleged Gay Serial Killer Andrew Cunanan, Clarkson takes the reader into the mind of the playboy who murdered Italian fashion designer Gianni Versace. Some of Clarkson's other true-crime novels include Whatever Mother Says, the shocking true story of a woman who was arrested in 1993 for the torture murders of her two daughters. Doctors of Death is the chilling true tales of psychopathic physicians; and An Eye for An Eye is the story of a woman out for revenge after the murder of her daughter, which was turned into a feature film starring Sally Fields. Clarkson's unauthorized biographies include exposes on Mel Gibson, Tom Cruise, John Travolta, and Quentin Tarantino.
