superficial, poorly written

The author refers to the violent and brutal murder of Mrs. Sam Sheppard as "the fuss". Her seven year old son sleeping in the next room was not awakened by "the fuss".

The writer fails to mention the underlying social and economic factors of the case. Sam Sheppard's father and two brothers were all osteopaths. They owned and opened their own hospital and were taking business from the local medical establishment.

All four men were well known womanizers.

Anti Semitism was also a factor as these four osteopaths were Jewish.

The other cases are fairly interesting. Mediocre book.

Unsolved because of shitty Police work.

They could have focused on truly baffling cases instead on cases that aren't solved because of crappy procedures. These cases have all the evidence they need but it was mishandled and too many people influenced the investigation.

Succinct

Interesting cases. Not the most popular ones either. Could be better written and longer. Okay
