Very interesting true crime story. Trailer parks, sex, and alcohol figure largely in this story - juicy! Cyanide in Excedrin capsules was the chosen method of murder, that also took an innocent life just to make it seem like a random poisoning.
This was a fascinating true crime. It was one of the product tampering cases that changed products and their packaging forever.
The book is big, over 500 pages, the crimes, backgrounds of the parties involved, and then the trial. There was too much of the intimate details of people's lives for me- people I didn't like. I felt the book needed some more editing.
Still, a compelling look at solving and prosecuting a mostly circumstantial case.
Awesome book! I love true crime, and this one did not disappoint--I think it might actually be my favorite of the genre! The book is very detailed, yet these details just make the story more interesting. My only complaint would be that it gets a little hard to keep track of so many characters. It would have been nice if there was a page or two in the front that lists details about the characters. I have seen this in other true crime books in the past, and it was very helpful.
