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.
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.
