Anne Perry is a successful crime novelist who has sold over 26 million copies of her novels. But Anne Perry has a very dark past. When Perry was just 16 years old (and going by a different name), she and a friend bludgeoned her mother to death after Perry’s friend Juliet, learned that she was going to be sent off to Africa. The two girls killed Perry’s mother because they were afraid that she wasn’t going to let Perry go with her best friend. The girls were charged with murder and sentenced to five years in prison for their crimes. After they were released they were given new identities and basically fell off the face of the earth. However in 1996, it was revealed that the young 16-year-old girl who’d killed her mother was actually successful crime novelist, Anne Perry. Despite this revelation, Perry continues to do extremely well as a crime novelist.
