An interesting account-too verbatim for me. I didn't feel that the characters were brought to life. It seemed at times that the author had the trial transcript in front of her and copied it faithfully.

The most boring true crime book I have ever read, and I've read plenty.

1.0 out of 5 stars The horror. The horror. Avoid at all costs. 1 Nov. 2004
By wfgodot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I only regret a rating of "no stars whatsoever" is not possible, because this book, more than any other true crime tome I've ever read (and I've read most, God save me), proves the following: all it takes, evidently, to publish with Pinnacle True Crime is i) enough money to pay for a trial transcript, and ii) a quarter to phone up the county sheriff for a short chat.

Because that, literally, is ALL of which this book consists. NO interviews with those involved; NO interesting angles in regards the crime; and, therefore, NO raison d'etre for this book to exist at all.

Yes, author Rosencrance presents the jurors' post-trial comments; as they're undocumented, I'm assuming they're from a news account. And, true, the author was either in the courtroom during the trial, or, and more likely, given her almost non-existent commentary on anything other than the killer's children's demeanor in court, including catty comments about one of the daughters' clothing choices (!), viewed televised footage of the proceedings. Or knew someone who did.

Information is told, re-told, re-told again, and THEN re-told AGAIN, ad nauseaum. The phrase "a must to avoid" lets this one off too easily. My recommendation? At the least, delay in purchasing a book, especially one in this genre, till you can scout up reviews--Amazon's the perfect place to find common readers who will fill you in on the desirability of true-crimers. In terms of my purchase here, I wish I'd taken my own advice.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lazy man's way to write a crime book 30 Aug. 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I like some trial coverage in my true crime books, but Rosencranz overdid it. All she did was use the trial transcripts basically verbatim. She did little research as far as I can tell. A little bit of info from the jurors and cops and that is it. I got tired of the constant repetition of what happened as she interviews every single cop, etc. who came to the crime scene. I had absolutely no feeling for who May and Dirk Greineder were as real people. No emotional connection, no nothing. If I had wanted to know about this crime from this angle I would have strictly read the newspapers. A total waste of paper.

1.0 out of 5 stars An awful piece of work 23 Nov. 2004
By crime watcher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This portrayl of the Dirk Greineder murder case is an awful piece of work that is riddled with errors and sheds no new information on the case. Author Rosencrance clearly did little more than watch the Court TV coverage of this case, read the local media accounts, and consult the trial transcripts. Beyond the local police chief and several jurors, none of the main participants in the case were interviewed and there is virtually no character development. The story line is disjointed, confusing and devoid of emotion and description. Some parts read like clinical police reports while other sections are trial transcripts run verbatim. Avoid this book at all costs as the errors are too numerous to list. It does not deserve a single star but there is no option for zero stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not What I Expected! 14 May 2005
By True Crime Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have been watching for a book to be published on the Greineder case since the completion of the trial. When I saw this book, I was very excited to purchase a copy. I watched the trial from beginning to end and was quite fascinated by it. As mentioned in other reviews, the book was not what I expected. I assumed it would be a well researched story and would have new information, but I was wrong. It is written from court records, transcipts of the trial, etc., so it was just a written form of what we had seen visually via Court TV.

Even though this was the case, I enjoyed reading it. I would have enjoyed reading it better, though, if there were more background information, character development, and input from family members, etc. Of course, I felt that the children and May's extended family would never agree to be interviewed for a book like this. They are very private people and probably felt that there would not be anything to be gained by participating in a project like this. I purchased a used copy, so I felt that I wasn't out too much. It wasn't just awful, but neither is it well researched like an Ann Rule book or other popular True Crime writers.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Killing Retold 6 Dec. 2012
By Jasper P. Bear - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I had seen this crime portrayed on tv so I knew who did it. I wanted to get more detail than was included in a one-hour program. There WAS more detail about the crime and the people involved, but it was repeated at least three times; the murder was described, it was described again during in the investigation, & then all was re-discussed during the trial portion of the book. Reading about the same scenario made me less inclined to finish the book. I have seen this repetition in other true crime books.
