Yipee. I’d long wanted to see my Aileen Wuornos biography in eBook format and finally got my wish – with a cherry on top. Kensington Books has just re-released it with new pix, a new cover and new content about Aileen’s decade on death row, her (rare for a Death Row inmate) long struggle to have her execution carried out and her legacy. (From Killer Hot Sauce being sold at her old hangout the Last Resort Bar to how the case is used in by former case detectives in classes and law enforcement training courses.) Hope you will check it out. Aileen Wuornos
