Michael Cuneo masterfully takes this worldwide news story and humanizes it with indepth profiles of the principle characters. Beyond the "just the facts" stories in the media, Cuneo lays out the twists and turns of Mease's struggle with his own demons that seemed destine to seal his fate. The story is told against the backdrop of the isolated and sometimes dangerous Ozarks and its hardscrabble culture of poverty, crime and straight-laced take no prisoners Pentecostal religion. An amazing story.
I read this because a friend I usually trust raved about it. It was the dullest book I've encountered in a long time--the true crime story about a murdered in Arkansas whose death sentence is commutued by the Gov at the request of Pope John Paul II. It reads like a journalist wrote it and my final thoughts were "who cares?"
This book is about murder but it reads like a fiction book not like other true crime books. I found myself wanting to get to the end to see if everything happened the way I wanted it to,

Extremely well written, a hard-to-put-down kind of book. You feel like you are getting to know each character very very well.... made me want to meet Darrell and Mary.......
