I happened across this in my library in the "new non-fiction" section. What makes this book a worthwhile read is the manner in which the author shows how media hysteria has interferred greatly with the solving of certain well known cases. In one infamous case, the only person who could have led to the body was so traumatized by her media experience that she killed herself. Fuhrman shows how he differs from others in how he cooperates with the police and doesn't air anything that could compromise the case. I gained some unusual insights into the Casey Anthony and Jon Benet Ramsey case from reading this book as well.
