Pender, now 32 years of age and a one time pre-physics student at Purdue University, was convicted in 2002 of the brutal double murder of her roommates and sentenced to 110 years in prison. Using her manipulative skills, Pender, an attractive, outgoing former honors student, escaped from prison and eluded authorities for 136 days through a cleverly designed network of friends, disposable cell phones, and the support of a wealthy sex addict who fell for her after a satisfying threesome sexual encounter.
The highly detailed book includes some incredible revelations:
A wealthy Indianapolis sex addict set Pender up with employment, an apartment, and a cell phone.
Pender worked for a printing-vendor of the Obama Campaign in Chicago stuffing mailers.
The convicted double-murderer traveled freely from Indianapolis to Cincinnati to Chicago.
Pender worked construction management and accounting.
Bumbling Indiana Correctional Authorities were clueless.
The 296-page book is a gripping, page-by-page account of the murder, the escape, and the 136 days on the lam.
