An interesting case, but the book is written in a novelistic style with loads of re-created dialogue (and thoughts!). The author mentions in passing the fact that the subject shot and killed his wife's horse (details? motivation? reactions? conseqences?), then loads the rest of the book with surmised/imagined and completely superfluous details. Much of the book is devoted to events that took place in the courtroom.
As far as true-crime books go, this one started off pretty well. The trick, however to this genre of book is to keep the reader equally engrossed in the courtroom/legal technicality stage of the book. Sorry to say, I lost interest while trying to keep up with the courtroom details, however detailed they were.
