Of the three books by Darcy O’Brien I have read I must say I like this one the least. Not to say it’s not a good book. It gets a bogged down in places. The middle part of the book dragged.

We get a little history of the region the crime happened in and a lot of history of the lawyer that got sucked into the case and the girlfriend of one of the men who committed the crime, some considered her the brains of the operation, but in the end she wasn’t running things, and some minor details about other crimes they were linked to. The trial is also covered in great detail, the author stops short of word for word transcripts though and that part of the book did not drag. The victims declined to be interviewed, they did not want to relive the crime again but much information was obtained from court records, trial transcripts and such.

Still a fascinating account of a crime that I believe not many people know of.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
