    I really enjoyed this book. Who knew that Atlanta had more to it

    I really enjoyed this book. Who knew that Atlanta had more to it than grits, Gone With The Wind and the civil rights movement!
    The author does a great job of describing the look and feel of Atlanta, the press, law enforcement and the state of criminal law in 1912.
    The writing is tight, at times humorous, and Mr. Hughes' opinions regarding what happened are presented in a low key way.
    It certainly seems like he would enjoy discussing anyone else's point of view of Daisy's guilt or innocence.
     One can immediately tell that the author enjoyed researching the incident and the telling of the tale. I look forward to his next book!

    I love true crime books and - other than the Leo Frank case - At

    I love true crime books and - other than the Leo Frank case - Atlanta hasn't produced too many worthy tales. This is an excellent book, full of great detail about the city. The background of the ill-starred marriage of Gene and Daisy is fascinating and the eventual locked room mystery is a puzzler. I went back and forward on how I think it all went down. The courtroom scenes are well drawn. Fun read. Recommended highly.
