I couldn't stop listening to the story. I knew of the incident/case but this is brilliant!

This book is interesting. I live in Illinois so I was very interested. This book does not go into depth of the reason for the depravity, just touched on it. It was very much about the trial and I found that interesting.
It really proves that then, as now, the rich are favored in the American judicial system. Not much had changed but then, I’m not sure how it could be.
If you have never heard this story before, I highly recommend it. It’s you are familiar with it, it holds little new but is still a good listen.
