I was gifted the book and read it in two nights. Since I lived through the original trial through the newspaper, I was interested to read the details that came out during the trial and what and how the involved people could get so entangled. Tom did a good job of breaking down each person's involvement and how the jury came up with their original verdict and then another jury reversed it on appeal. How she did all that with a steel rod up her back is beyond me.

I've been interested in this case since I first heard about it a few years ago. We'll probably never know what really happened, but the author makes a pretty strong argument as to who the real killer is.

I really didn't like this book as it was too quick and I am not convinced about who did it and feel like I need to read more.
