Product Description

Product Description

Leopold and Loeb were two wealthy law students who could buy anything. But they wanted the one thing that no amount of money could buy: life. They wanted to create the Perfect Crime--to kidnap and murder a 14-year-old boy for the thrill of getting away with murder.

The crime was so horrifying that even legendary filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock took notice, and directed his version of the story: Rope. But the real story of the Rope is much more brutal and suspenseful than even Hitchcock could do justice to. Read the real history in this thrilling true crime book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Briskly paced and well written 13 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An enjoyable read - although perhaps I shouldn't be saying that about a true crime. There was a good balance between detail and a lively pace. The social context was explained well enough for this twenty-first century British reader to feel she understood, without losing the sense that the past, as well as the USA, is indeed a foreign country. The well- written narrative steers an admirable course between the opposing pitfalls of sensationalism and stodginess.
