One of the best things about the book is the cast of characters. If you created these people as fictional characters no one would believe you. People simply would assume that these people were too fantastic to be real:
* Jose Menendez, the domineering Cuban immigrant determined to build a Kennedy-like family empire,
* Lyle & Eric, the privileged, murderous sons,
* Leslie Abramson, the fiery, confrontational defense attorney with the unkempt hair
* Dr. Oziel, Erik's psychologist and his paramour, Judalon Smyth
Aside from the characters, there are plenty of other things to keep you going: sex, burglary, Beverly Hills, & murder. The authors do a great job of keeping the pages turning. They even manage to keep your interest when they describe the trial. I find that true crime books often bog down in too much minutiae when they get to the trial.
My complaint about the book is the ending. The authors published their book between the two trials, so you are left hanging by the end. It would be great to have an update with the second trial & the dozen years since the case and its characters faded from view.
