What would drive a mother to kill her children?
Drawing from hundreds of hours of interviews, court testimony, and medical records, including new access to psychiatric and legal files, Breaking Point traces the story of an all-American family struggling with the darkness of a mental illness that twisted a loving mother into a killer obsessed with hellfire.
“Breaking Point is a truly spellbinding read.”–Aphrodite Jones, bestselling author of Cruel Sacrifice
