I bought this because I had seen the late Dominick Dunne on TV and liked his style. Also because this book contained an account of the murder of his daughter and the trial of her killer which ended with the murderer being given what seemed like an unfairly short sentence. It made very interesting reading and was written extremely well by Dunne. As for the rest of the book, it tells stories about rich and famous people whom Dunne got to know over the years. He gives well-written accounts, but the people he writes about do not seem to be very interesting in themselves (not Dunne's fault) except for the fact that they are rich and famous. It is an interesting insight into the enormously cynical world which they inhabit.
