Finally.

Much as I liked John Berendt's book, and I kind of liked the movie - or maybe I just liked Kevin Spacey - I thought I would like this book. And I guess I kind of did like parts of it. The problem was that this book just dragged. Although she didn't put in the transcripts from each of the four trials, it dragged as if she did. Actually I might have enjoyed it more if there had been transcripts. But it just drags out each detail in each of the trials.

The first half of the book was much more interesting. More about the real story (I don't know if it is actually the"real" story) of Savannah and events leading up to Mr. Hansford's death and the Jim Williams story. Not quite the same as I recall in Berendt's book.

So this is probably more like 2 1/2★.
