A true crime book about the 1932 murder of Mamie Thurman in Logan County, West Virginia. This book -written in journalistic fashion, which rarely hooks me in the way that other narrative styles do- presents the legal documentation and news coverage of the case. This can make for a dry reading, but the author never presumes to lay the guilt on any party, leaving those assumptions for the readers to form. The author stays with the public record, while I would have like more intimate details about Mamie's private life. The author ends the book by discussing Mamie's impact on Logan, WV, recounting the local legends -including a couple of ghost stories- surrounding the Mamie Thurman mystery. Unfortunately, no one has found the grave of Mamie Thurman - it would be interesting to see what modern forensics could tell us about this case now.
