Nothing written about the death of JonBenet Ramsey can possibly prepare the listener for the revelations in this audio. Here, acclaimed writer Lawrence Schiller reveals for the first time the uncensored true story of the events that unfolded on Christmas night of 1996 and the unthinkable damage suffered by a community in the aftermath. This gripping definitive account finally answers the question: What happened in the town of Boulder, Colorado? With meticulous research, attention to detail, and masterful writing, Schiller creates a portrait of an inscrutable family thrust under the spotlight of public suspicion and an affluent, tranquil city torn apart by a crime it was unprepared to deal with.

Slightly imperfect listen

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

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...

What disappointed you about Perfect Murder, Perfect Town?

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.

Has Perfect Murder, Perfect Town turned you off from other books in this genre?


How did the narrator detract from the book?

He sucked.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Perfect Murder, Perfect Town?

I would not have let it be published.

Any additional comments?

This sucked.

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.
