A Fascinating Take On These Murders
on 1 November 2012
This book was totally fascinating for me being a true crime buff. It also meant that I recognised from the descriptions of the murdered women who each of them were. It's written as part fiction, part fact as of course we can't know in each case exactly what transpired on the nights each were killed.
The women she writes as are Natalie Wood, Nicole Brown Simpson, Sunny Von Bulow and Colette MacDonald. In each there's no mention of the husband's name but if you know their stories you'll know who they speak of.
I especially liked Colette's story as I've read about her in the past in Joe McGinness's great book on the case. Her murdering spouse was Jeffrey MacDonald, a real prize.
There were spelling errors and grammatical mistakes but thankfully not enough to wear me down. However, it's annoying when Nic suddenly become Nick or Freddy turns in Freddie........that comes across as really careless which is a bloody shame.
If you've read about any of these cases I'd certainly recommend this. If you haven't and don't recognise them I think you'd be pretty confused as the author doesn't tell you who she's writing about. It's sort of assumed you know.
