    Waste of Time and Money!

    This book was totally awful! It has got to be the most boring thing I have read since college. Some of it was so far fetched...it just enforced my belief in his guilt. Don't waste your time or money!

    Both sides

    After reading Fatal Justice, I am more convinced than ever that Jeff MacDonald is GUILTY of butchering his family. The arguements in his defense are weak at best and are far fetched in their reasoning. While reading the book, I felt the author and defense team were grasping at straws to portray his innocence. There is no evidence of intruders on the night of the murders, and the only piece of evidence the defense has that brings up questions is Helen S. She comes across as an attention seeking druggie who can not be believed or trusted. I liked the book because I like hearing both sides of a story, but if you want all the facts I suggest reading the transcripts of the case which are available on several websites.

    TOTAL BIASED LIES - READ FATAL VISION INSTEAD

    This book is totally biased!!! It mocks great books based on the case such as Fatal Vision. I can't believe people would think that this baby and wife murderer is innocent!!! Please read next time people and be smart enough to follow the facts before giving your biased and uneducated opinions!!

    Justice Will Prevail in the End!

    I had been convinced, even before reading Fatal Justice that something was very wrong with the case against Jeffrey MacDonald. I believed in his innocense and I still do! This man is sitting in prison for 3 murders which he did not take part in. Read this book and you too will agree with me! One of these days, you will be free Jeffrey MacDonald!!!

    A MUST READ IF YOU READ 'FATAL VISION'

    As the old saying goes, there are two sides to every story. And this book gives a very detailed and somewhat disturbing 'other side' to the MacDonald murder mystery. The authors were very diligent in providing all of the factual back up to reference as you read the book. It was very intriguing to think that perhaps, we were NOT given the whole story in 'Fatal Vision' and that perhaps there is an innocent man sitting in prison for not only a crime that he didn't commit, but the most heinous crime a person could be convicted of, the slaughter of his children and pregnant wife. This is a must read...and I only wish that a follow up book was being written now to find out if justice will prevail in the end!
