"It didn't seem possible. Kitty Genovese had been viciously stabbed to death in Kew Gardens on March 13, 1964, while her neighbors heard her screams from their apartment windows and looked on passively...Everyone from coast to coast, it seemed, including President Lyndon Johnson, was weighing in on the failure of Kitty's neighbors to respond to her screams for help. The incident opened up a whole new phenomenon for students of social psychology to explore and puzzle over: the Kitty Genovese syndrome."

A sit on the edge of your seat book. An engrossing true story that kept my attention throughout. A compelling story about a tragic incident in this country. Reading about the inside story of how a conviction became reality was intriguing. The persistence and clever detective work of the District Attorney's office in the finding of the clue that unravelled the entire case shows that the American justice system does prevail. I highly recommend reading this book. It gives you renewed faith in America and the people who want justice.
Very interesting story about three victims and two murderers who admitted to one or more of the crimes. On the edge of your seat story regarding the trials to find justice.
