True Crime Author Burl Barer’s Next Hit: “Fatal Beauty”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

She Offered Her Body…Jimmy Joste was a powerhouse in the oil and gas industry, but he was a weakling when it came to his gorgeous, athletic, longtime lover, Rhonda Glover. Addicted to her sexual prowess and madly in love, Joste gave her homes, cars, cash, and a $350,000 engagement ring. 

…But Left Him As A Corpse

Their fifteen years of passion and excess ended the day Rhonda drove directly from a shooting range to the Austin home they once shared. After pumping ten bullets into him from a Glock 9mm, she stood over Joste’s blood-splattered body and shot him six more times—twice below the waist.

The Ultimate Girl Gone Wild

According to Rhonda, Joste was violent, abusive, and threatened her life. Here, for the first time, are Rhonda Glover’s shocking stories of drug-crazed devil worship and sexual perversity. But in a packed courtroom, prosecutors presented shocking evidence that beautiful Rhonda didn’t act in self-defense—it was hot-blooded murder!
