Well -written,objectively portrayed true-crime book. Dramatic, but not exploitative .

Not a who dunnit, but a why did they do it. A fabulous account of an otherwise inexplicable double murder. We meet the Woodman family, first and second generation English immigrants, whose story, at first glance, is the realization of the American Dream, a young man who arrives in pre-WWII America, sends for and marries his childhood sweetheart, moves to California and through diligence and constant effort builds a company that makes him a millionaire. Then the author peels back the layers of deceit and chicanery, revealing an amazing train wreck of a family engaged in every sort of criminal  business practices. Theft, swindling, tax evasion, extortion--everything you could imagine that a family-owned business could engage in, and then more that is almost beyond belief. When it all comes apart, the two older sons take control of the family enterprise, by then worth many millions, force their father out, and proceed to --- well, read the book. You won't be able to put it down.
