Overview

On April 10, 2001, Sandra Baker, a recently separated, forty-five-year-old mother of two, went for a facelift-and a new lease on life. But the nurse anesthetist was a woman from her past. And Sandra's future was in jeopardy...

Decades before, in a world of high school cliques and competition, Sally Jordan Hill had a crush on a guy whose attentions turned toward Sandra. Little did Sandra know how jealous Sally might have been...

Once Nurse Sally had Sandra in her care, she administered a lethal dose of the painkiller Fentanyl. Within hours, Sandra was brain dead-and her death was ruled a medical mistake. But earlier, Sally's coworkers heard her say this: That's the woman who stole my boyfriend in high school. And soon, a determined detective would find new clues to convince a judge that Sandra's death was no accident. ...

Beauty Sleep is the true story of glamor, jealousy ... and cold-blooded murder.
