Item description for Gossip Kills: (The 9Th/8th ? Commandment) "You Shall Not Bear Dishonest Witness Against Your Neighbor." --Deuteronomy 5:20 by Carole Anne Fielder...
Two Pompano Beach detectives appear at the Florida residence of an innocent woman and accuse her of murdering her brother in Oregon and planning a satanic cult mass suicide. Is it possible? She is disabled, hasn't spent a night away from home in six years, and participates at the local Roman Catholic Church. She has been mourning the recent deaths of both her brother and her father.
Acting on an accusatory letter sent by a sister in Virginia, the police continue to harass her. Soon afterwards she learns that someone has been impersonating her, posting pornographic web pages inviting men to come directly to her house to be paid for sex parties on yachts. Trespassers, vandals, stalkers, and burglars show up but the police refuse to help. In defense, she tries to uncover the truth.
Totally alone, she exposes the dirty laundry of a dysfunctional First Family of Virginia, as well as the bungling and corruption of the local police. The search reveals scandals triggered by a suicide note, a secret abortion and drug addiction that led to insanity, mismanagement of a million-dollar family estate, and a slanderous conspiracy among U.S. military employees, a staff employee working in the Virginia State Assembly, and others in Virginia. The gossip spreads ominously from Virginia to Oregon to Florida to Germany.

Fiction, Right? Mar 14, 2004
I found this a somehwat entertaining read and at times even a little funny, but the author's claim that it is a 'true' story seems a little exagerated to me. I think it would read better as a novel, with the heroine's character a little more developed. The book has a beginning and a middle, but it's endng leaves the reader hanging. If the book is actually true and the author is using real peoples names, I hope for her sake that the characters in her book either don't care that she's smearing their names publicly, or else they don't find out about what she's saying about them. But I suspect it's really fiction. The best thing about the book is that you can read it for free on the author's website, gossip kills.com. I accidently found it online and was intruiged enough to go on and read it.
