This book was interesting and told in detail the story of an infamous murder, but I became bogged down in the sheer number of people listed and the roles they had - much as I wouldn't want to detract from their work, I felt this adversely impacted on the narrative.
"This was steaming mess..."
Wow...talk about a discombobulated mess. This book is all over the place. The narrator is horrible. Extremely hard to keep track of who's who as it keeps skipping from first person to third person to author... Don't wast your money or time on this heaping mess.
I would not have let it be published.
"all police work"
Perhaps I wrongly assumed this book would be about JonBenet and the Ramseys... it was significantly more about the politics surrounding Boulder, the police and the DA. In fact, if you counted how many times the name Thomas, or Hanson or even the reporter's name was used, I am sure they would significantly outnumber the times you heard Patsy, John or JonBenet.
Interesting,informative, thought provoking
Oh our small foreign faction forgot duct tape, rope,and a note pad AHAHAHAHA =]
Ego versus politics versus assumptions versus lies versus the truth
Yes It is very interesting that even though Schiller never digs deep into the possibilty of the landscaper commiting the murder yet it is the landscaper/yard man that was first mentioned talking to JohnBenet and then again the question that she asked him about the roses mentioned at the end of the book as well.I just wonder if Schiller had his own personal suspitition?? who knows? Nevertheless the book was quite interesting despite the overwhelming internal problems that exist within the Boulder police department and their so called justice system.. I mean this was pathetic that there were so many people that seemed to be more concerned about their personal ego’s than focusing on the objective of getting the job of justice completed.One would hope and expect that if people got paid every day and made a career out of law enforcement,and judicial matters that they can and would be able to A) find out who killed her, B) bring them to justice, C) Carry out a proper trial. As we see now 17 years later that none of this has ever occured nor probably will it ever. This case is doubtless a reflection on Boulder Colorado,their law enforcement, and their judicial system which has failed thier citizens not to mention JohnBenet MIGHTILY
The intense level of inexperience,ignorance,imaturity,is a complete shame.
"Interesting but too long"
It's too long
I think there is too much quibbling to explain that the case remained unsolved because the police made faults at the very begining.
On the whole, I enjoyed it.
I don't think so.
Not well written. Story is really about the probem's with the police and the prosecutor etc.
