Good story but you don't know the ending since they don't present the second trial.

Author Davis does a pretty good job of describing the murders of José and Kitty Menendez, as well as the family dynamic that probably helped to drive sons Lyle and Erik to commit those murders.
The truncated discussion of the case ends with the hung jury that concluded trial #1. Davis really owes it to the reading public to provide an update to events as they unfolded with Trial #2. The update could take the form of a brief summary and needn't be a lengthy examination of the second trial and subsequent appeals.
The writing is often precious and could have used a sharp red pencil. The month of June did not end, for example, but was torn from the calendar. Narrator Verner is a little over the top with his velvet tone and slow-paced delivery, and needs to check the pronunciation of words such as aberrant, (AB-er-rant, not a-BEAR-ant) and foreign language names such as Fuljencio deserve the effort required to check pronunciation.
