    Not his best effort, by far

    This book doesn't include the in depth research that was in Fatal Vision: when I was through reading that book, I was convinced that the man murdered his wife and children. In Never Enough, there was never any doubt. Nancy married into a very dysfunctional family and murdered one of them. Money: why she married, why she murdered. Save your money on this one.

    Give Him a Break...

    I admit I too was frustrated by the lack of forensic details, like if his toxicology reports showed prolonged cocaine use - we get so used to that here in the U.S. - but the writer was limited by the scope the Hong Kong police's investigation. He can't report what they didn't release, and he certainly can't report what they didn't test for. It was an open and shut case, so maybe they didn't feel it was necessary to pour money into proving a case against Nancy when she admitted she was guilty. Also, the Vermont lover is still living, and obviously has to get by in life. He clearly doesn't want to be connected to the Kissel case, and I don't blame him. I wouldn't have consented to the writer using ANY identifying detail. He shared letters from Nancy, and told enough of the story to "tell the story" - he's done enough. You as a reader got the point, so Mr. McGinniss did his job. I will say though, I did feel this was a bit "half hearted" but I think it was written to show how your own heart and mind can lie to you, and convince you that no matter what you're looking at, there's always room, and time, for improvement and people can always change for the better. In some cases, this isn't true.

    Life in Hong Kong at it's best

    Having lived in Hong Kong during this time period myself, I was excited to read the portrayal of the charactors and the feel of life in Hong Kong. Mr. McGinniss has done an excellent job of researching the places and ex-pat life. It is a great, fast paced read that is riveting throughout.

    I really liked this book!

    Having lived out of the country, I really liked this book. I thought the descriptions of living out of the USA and the isolation that can cause was right on. I enjoyed following the true life crime and trial story that McGinniss brought to life.

    Disappointed about important details

    Anything by Joe McGinniss is always a good read, but I found some holes in important details about the case. For example, did Robert have a cocaine problem, or was it just Nancy slinging mud on his reputation. If he did, there had to be colleagues of his that knew and someone who sold to him. feel very, very sorry for the kids being bounced around like ping pong balls.

    The title says it all

    I'n not sure what attracts me to these "true crime" books, especially the ones written by Mcginniss, but I think it's because while the people's behavior is in a strange way facinating, it's difficult to understand. The principals in this book are no different. They are rich,have every advantage life can offer but throw it all away by being selfish and and as the book says it's never enough. This is a story that has all the titilation you could want, money, sex, drugs, more money and murder. There are more victims in this story than the one murdered. An interesting story that makes me glad that my life would be judged as pretty boring by the characters in this book.

    This is not McGinniss's best effort. His research is usually more thorough. An easy read, for sure, but he didn't delve deeply enough into some of the characters, such as the Vermont lover. The Kissels were the classic dysfunctional family, and perhaps more psychological insight into this enigmatic family would have been helpful. Still, McGinniss remains one of the best true crime writers of our time. I recommend it.
