    A necessary sequel to Brian McDonald's Safe Harbor: A Murder In Nantucket

    The fascinating, fourteen-day murder trial of Thomas E. Toolan III was a dramatic contest between the findings of learned, Harvard-educated psychologists, psychiatrists, and criminologists and mountains of testimony by both expert and ordinary witnesses, between theories of diminished responsibility and common sense. The latter easily prevailed: the jury reached a verdict after only four and one-half hours of deliberation -- about the length of time, as Hilary Russ of The Cape Cod Times wrote, that it would have taken the defendant to drive from Cape Cod back to his Manhattan residence had he not been intercepted by state police near Warwick, Rhode Island. If you weren't in attendance, reading this work is tantamount to having been there. The day-by-day repartee, intended and accidental humor, pathos, and grim reality are faithfully portrayed by a professional writer and author. For the background of this case, the reader is referred to Brian McDonald's book, Safe Harbor: A Murder In Nantucket, published in both hardcover and paperback by St. Martin's Press.
