I haven't read the print version. The audio edition is excellent and kept my attention.
The development of the characters and their world captured my attention, as well as the details of the story itself. The story is written using some of the approaches used in fiction that reflect real life, like fore-shadowing and changes in characterization of individuals. Taking the tale to the very end of the characters lives was very important. Paul French provides a very convincing case with ample documentation that gives you a sense of what life was like for the characters.
Tragic story of a brutal murder; hard not to be sad.
