A contemporary fictional murder case juxtaposed with a one-hundred and sixty five year old North Carolinian true frontier murder case. More emphasis was on the latter, which was the more interesting story. The historical Frankie Silver case provided hours of listening entertainment on my daily commute. The author's note at the end indicated her commitment to painstakingly researching and maintaining the accuracy of many of the revealed facts of this old and mostly forgotten tale of a young mountain girl of North Carolina and a grisly crime. A different sort of read for me, but I did enjoy the tale.
