Good book, well detailed and written. A man is murdered in a case of mistaken identity by a couple of low life idiots and a greedy wife. I remember seeing the intended victim on the Larry King show. It is saddening that a totally innocent person was killed just because of his resemblance to the intended person.

Interesting narrative and repetitive dialogue base on two trials going on at once. Two low life's were hired to kill a man by an ex wife. They kill the wrong man.

This book is based on a case on Larry King Live.

Quotes extensively from legal documents (including transcripts from a rare two-jury trial), which is interesting in its own way but also makes for a somewhat repetitious narrative.
