Baby got Backstory

"Incurably romantic with his falsely placed love toward the greatest criminal Califa has ever known--"

I don't want to buy the second Flora book. Which is fine, as it won't be released till September, though people are blogging about reading it now. But I do want to know *why* Butcher Breakspeare was the greatest criminal Calif(orni)a has ever known. (World-building? Looks straight AU to me.) She's rumoured to have shot her husband but that, surely, is a mere bagatelle.

I hate having to wait for backstories to be revealed, with no guarantee they ever will be. Hrmph.
