Solid true crime story, written in straightforward journalistic style, about a murder case in Kentucky. Author Van Meter is a good, level-headed writer and never descends into the overwrought tabloid style that often afflicts this genre, though it would have been easy enough to do given the subject matter. (Frankly, I can only assume that those people who called this book "poorly written" actually like that overwrought tabloid style -- think Ann Rule and the awful Kathryn Casey -- and were disappointed by its absence here. I mean, an opinion is an opinion, but by no meaningful or knowledgeable standard is this book "poorly written." Well, let a thousand flowers bloom, I guess.)
