"Fatal Vision", by Joe McGinniss, is probably the best true crime book that I've read! Such a deep character study! McGinniss describes in detail Dr. Jeff MacDonald, and the crime he was accused of (the brutal murder of his wife and two children), and the subsequent trial. I'm pretty dazzled by it, and I highly recommend it.

I read it years ago and it was a great read.  Written the way I like my true crime books written.  A book called Fatal Justice came out to refute many of the claims in Fatal Justice.  McDonald has been trying for years to get out of jail. 

If you haven't read ~In Cold Blood~ it's another really classic true crime read.  I read it years ago but listened to the audio last year and it was still a wonderfully written book

I read "Vision" years ago and I agree, it was one really good book. If you haven't read "Blind Faith" by McGinniss I suggest you do, it's another good one!
