Rating: Liked it ♥
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.
