did not like it
bookshelves: fiction, mystery
Read in January, 2003

Serial murder business based on O. Henry. Didn't like the characterization of William Sydney Porter, which seems to have been fictional. Hope his heirs sue the author and win.

Librarian40 You might want to read up a bit on O. Henry. He actually was convicted of embezzlement, etc. Not terribly fictional. And his true name was William Sydney Porter.

What would have to be fictional would be various thoughts and statements, since Saylor didn't stick to the "red letter" version of history, and doesn't have a time machine. But you can't sue someone for that!
