I am a real 'true crime' enthusiast. This is, by far, the worst book I have ever read. The cover should indicate 'Written by Joyce Maynard & Julie Dumbleton'. I am happy I got this from the library as opposed to spending money on it!!

Well-written, engrossing and very involving. I was really looking forward to this book because I had seen excerpts of the trial on Court TV. I was not disappointed. And what was particularly interesting is that the book isn't just about the murder and the aftermath, but also about the work of gathering the material to make the book. Joyce Maynard began her quest feeling very sympathetic to the suspect-wife who claimed self-defense and wound up believing the prosecution. I liked it a lot.Was this review helpful?
