Hm... what would be a useful sample sentence?
"Buddy, I'm not sure about your engagement. You might be marrying one of those purple wives."
"Dude, chill. Alicia is all heart."
And Zelda, thats a great example sentence! Please say you'll actually be adding this lovely term to the urban dictionary haha

My guess would be that either some of the names had to be changed for legal reasons or the author took the liberty of changing their names because he wanted something more memorable? The first option seems more likely though; I bet there was some reason he couldn't use certain names, rather than choosing to change them.Melissa Coffield wrote:Just finished the book. I loved it. Loved the twist at the end. I did a little research on the Philadelphia Poison ring on my own and found it very interesting. The author new his facts. I am wondering though, why he chose to change some names and not others or I guess why he couldn't use all of their real names. It was a fantastic read though. You just can't believe some of the things this group was capable of.
