Fascinating examination of how a crime came to happen.
Apr 29, 2008
This is the kind of true crime book that intrigues me most--the "How Did This Happen" kind. It recounts the events leading up to and through the murder of two very well-respected Dartmouth professors, who were also enormous pillars of the community. Amazingly, these boys committed the crime in the couples' home when they answered the door for them. Generally speaking, although the story couldn't possibly be more interesting, it's not the best read in the world. It almost felt as if the authors got too close to the subject to really report it well.
