I'm almost to the end and I generally thought it was a good read. The case against Jeff MacDonald was full of errors and incompetencies, and it was very frustrating to read how one or two mistakes can avalanche into ruining someone's life. After reading most of the book, I think MacDonald was innocent, but he had a big mouth and did some stupid things which brought him unnecessary attention. After a while it got a bit tiresome reading detail after detail over and over again presented in different phrases, but this wasn't the author's fault. He was merely recording direct testimony. But there was a lot of it. My favorite parts were the narratives and learning the back story of all the people involved. That was pretty fascinating.
