This book had me enthralled from the opening page. Mr. Bugliosi weaves an amazing story with so much detail that it seems like he is narrating something as it happens! A sad tale of two customers looking to be alone in a remote island (I wonder if the same island was used for the Tom Hanks movie survivor?) who get miffed that they are not alone. One of the couples ends up murdered and it is obvious who their killers are but through lack of physical evidence, the killers were not brought to trial to many years later. Note: spoilers below:
It made my blood boil at what Buck Walker and Jennifer Jenkins did to the Grahams. The photos in the book show them as a beautiful couple with a boat that anyone would be proud to own.
The only issue with the book that I had was how Mr. Bugliosi could defend Jennifer Jenkins (note: I looked at newspaper articles and her name is different. I wonder if she changed it for the publicity), insisting he was sure of her inocence when the prosecutor's closing arguments of the trial left no doubt that she had to be involved in the murders.
I was also upset to read that Buck Walker was paroled in 2007.
