VERY poorly written - book skips around too much and seems to race to and end abruptly.  Found 4 editing errors in first 50 pages.  In one part, it state s the jury is made up of more women than men.  In another place, it talks about a Facebook website called Justice 4ravis and states it has over 40,000 followers.  In reality - Justice4Travis has less than 100 followers.  The site they should have names was "The State vs Jodi Arias - Travis Alexander Murder Trial."  I have followed this case daily since Day 1 - and follow Wild About Trail while watching the trial online.  Its a good thing this book only cost $3.99 on my Nook because it surely was not worth it.  I RESENT them printing wrong information.

For anyone who is a true crime buff, this book might fall a little short. It is only 120 pages long so obviously the story isn't presented in great detail, but is still afmittedly pretty interesting

I did not follow the case closely in the media so I learned a lot about Jodi and Travis. A quick read and informative.

The author is very clearly biased in favor of Arias and against the Prosecution. When one is trying to write True Crime book, the goal is to remain objective. Also poorly written, edited, etc.
