Publisher's Summary

The gruesome true story of a small town murder in 1988.

©1991 Joe McGinniss (P)2008 Simon & Schuster

Critic Reviews

"Personable, cocky North Carolina college student Chris Pritchard, fond of marijuana, coke and LSD, and obsessed with the acting-out fantasy game Dungeons & Dragons, conspired in 1988 with two fellow D & D players to have his mother and wealthy stepfather murdered so that he could inherit $2 million....crisply written." (Publishers Weekly)
"In a book that's more a psychodrama than a detective story, McGinniss has drawn a riveting portrait of parental devotion that flies in the face of the truth. His reputation as a brutally honest storyteller will attract many readers." (Library Journal)

A good true crime story

The VonStine case is layed out in a not over long fashion. very good narration by Stacey Keach. There's no great mystery here. it's just a good book to use as distraction as you go about your day.
