Face To Face With A Killer
EVIL AND SON describes the author’s face-to-face meeting with the woman described as America’s most depraved murderess, Sante Kimes.
In the spring of 2011, John Marquis was invited by Kimes to visit her at a high-security women’s prison in New York state. With his barrister son Piers as legal back-up, Marquis accepted the offer to conduct what he described as one of the most fascinating interviews of his career.
This story of ‘Mommie and Clyde’ - Kimes and her son Kenny - covers their con-and-kill spree across America in the late 1990s, including the merciless slaying of New York socialite Irene Silverman.
During their meeting, Kimes protested her innocence and pleaded for a review of her case. However, she died in her cell two years later. Kenny is still serving a life term in Los Angeles.
