Firstly, in my opinion, if you have read heavier than heaven, this probably isn't the book for you. The first half/ three quarters of the book come across as more of a summary of Heavier, with a few side notes thrown in.
When it finally comes to what it says on the tin, the question of who murdered Kurt Cobain, it really doesn't dedicate itself to anything solid, instead opting to tell the story of his death with a few questions and opinions scattered around for good measure.
The authors have clearly done some dirt digging on Courtney Love, and to be fair, do not put everything across as fact, questioning everything they are told. But, and this is an important one, if you are already convinced Love is to blame for his death, this book isn't going to challenge this view, but at the same time wont give you anything new to support this opinion.
There is one point made in this book in reference to the suicide note, this was a genuinely interesting read that I wont ruin, but I wouldn't recommend the book based on this one thing.
So, if you are a die hard fan, and must own this book, it is cheap enough that you wont be disappointed, but if I wouldn't suggest it if you want a genuinely interesting read.
