    Very interesting but over too quick!

    I'm a big fan of historical true crime so I found this very interesting. I wish it werea little longer with a more in depth accounting of both Dr. Snook and Theora Hix prior to their affair and the crime so we could have gotten to know them better. But still a very interesting book.
