Totally engrossing

Fascinating story written so well it reads like fiction! The investigators and detectives have their hands full without any of the modern forensic tools and even fingerprints are considered junk science! And the media? Boy if you think the media is out of control today....

Very interesting

Really enjoyed the book. The history of print journalism and the story itself was very entertaining.
