Spieler offers a portrait of an erratic, unstable woman with a protean capacity to shift identities, with the 1960s and 1970s as a dramatic backdrop. Fans of true crime accounts or contemporary history will savor this portrait of the first woman to make an assassination attempt on an American president.-Publishers Weekly.
