Casebook Review:


A well-researched book held as one of the best to emerge in the late 1980s. The facts are clearly presented when it comes to the murders themselves, but Fido's ultimate conclusions as to the identity of the killer (he suggests a lunatic named David Cohen) are complicated and somewhat unconvincing. Nevertheless, recommended for a telling of the general facts of the case.
