So far this book is TERRIBLE and yet I can't stop reading it.
I mean, really really terrible in a sensationalist, slapped-together kind of way.
But how can I not be interested in the Mendendez brothers? Especially since their trial was at the illustrious Van Nuys courthouse, a quick jaunt from my house.

I definitely struggled to finish the book. Norma could have explained these confusing transcripts. The investigators writing at the end of the book was much better written and easily read. I hope this lady never writes another book.

I read this book a few years back. It is very sad how the 2 brothers talk so openly about murdering their parents and have no remorse in doing so.
