Details about Lawbreaking Ladies by Erika Owen
In Lawbreaking Ladies by Erika Owen, I’ll also introduce you to women who pose an interesting juxtaposition with regard to their professions. For instance, you’ll read about a professional gambler who allegedly shot her ex-lover dead and then just pages later read about a woman who helped fund an entire performing arts center through her work running a casino in Las Vegas. Although these gambling gals led very dierent lives, both were enterprising women who forged unconventional careers for their respective times, and both were remarkable in their own right. Their stories also serve to show that while the title of this book may sound like you’re in for hundreds of pages of grisly crime—which is partly true (there are certainly women featured in this book with whom I’d never want to cross paths)—I’ll give you a break once in a while with a more uplifting tale.
