Gold Medal Killer is a well researched easy read true crime story by a respected author and journalist, Diana Franklin. You will not be disappointed by its purchase.
And, Gold Medal Killer, the story of Dr. Snook - an Ohio State University Veterinary Medicine professor and an Olympic golf medalist - proves that adage.
Over the years, I had heard about the infamous murder of Dr. Snook's coed lover, the subsequent trial and execution, but Diana Franklin's book really made it come to life for me.
I am an avid crime reader and this book [ASIN:0982659725 Gold Medal Killer: The Shocking True Story of the Ohio State Professor -- an Olympic Champion -- and His Coed Lover] is among the best.
The fact that I attended The Ohio State University made is even more powerful.
I enjoyed every page.
A great read. Fast and eyebrow-raising. Franklin has an easy style of writing that tells a riveting story in an intriguing way. Don't miss this one. And while you are buying, purchase a copy of "The Good Bye Door", too. You won't regret it!
