What a well written and interesting book this turned out to be, having just read Charlie Chaplin's memoirs where Arbuckle is mentioned I decided to read more about 'Fatty' and this book is the ultimate, objective, honest read about Arbuckle I suspect has been written, it is spellbinding, I felt as if I was at the Trial, with all the anxious moments captured as if I was part of the events. By the end of the Trial I expected it to trail off but the writer manages to bring you back into today's world and makes a great point about Hearst and Murdoch. Will now look for other work by this author, it was a great read!

there's a couple of books about Fatty and in the end i went for this one, once i started i didnt stop reading, very informative, a sad end to an innocent mans career, the title says it all, will definately read again
