I wish Joe McGinnis wrote more true crime books....this latest one ~ Never Enough~ is really good.  It is about the Kissel brothers.  I remember the crime..the wife of one kills him in Hong Kong and then the other brother gets killed here in the states and I don't think they ever found out who killed him.  I'm about 1/2 way through the book and it is very well written.  Mine is a library hardback..but you should put this one on your wish list.

I finished the book..it was great!!!  One of the best I have read in a while.  I also have a new paperback on my wish list about the same crime. I doubt it can be as good but I enjoy reading 2 books about the same crime and comparing authors..

I recently read this book and it left me with a few questions. Yes she killed him and all that but didn't you guys think that McGinnis' research was quite focused on her bad side ? I mean in the end I asked myself if Robert wasn't such a good guy as he was described. Why are former working colleagues still funding for her trial and lawyer costs ? Then there was the internet stuff, the searches done by Robert. For me those are questions that should have been answered. But nevertheless, it was a good read.
