Housewife Assassin By Geri Spieler AudioBook Summary
President Gerald Ford suffered two attempts on his life during his term in office: one by a young woman in Charles Manson’s Family, Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, and the other by a far more unlikely candidate—an average middle-aged mother of five—Sara Jane Moore. After thirty years in contact with Moore in prison, journalist Geri Spieler deconstructs her life in Housewife Assassin, tracing the path from Moore’s small-town upbringing in West Virginia to that fateful moment when she tried to assassinate the president.
Throughout Moore’s dodgy life she hid her identity and misled those around her. Through the turbulent ’60s and ’70s, she married five times, abandoned children, faked amnesia, befriended Patty Hearst’s father, became a revolutionary, and worked as an FBI informant turned double agent feeding information to the underground radicals, all before the assassination attempt.
