From the wiretap transcriptions, we learned something of the interaction of the mother Sabrina and her children. I was left wondering what kind of a mother she was since she talked on the phone to Jonathan a lot when her children were close enough to call to her for attention. And after the husband Robert's death, Jonathan became part of the children's lives almost immediately.
As open as the friends were about their sexual activities, including backyard parties, I would be surprised if the children weren't shunned and harassed by their peers about their parents' lifestyles. Even though the children were young when the parents were actively partying with others who had open sexual relations, the neighbors would surely not want their children to become friends, and the segregation of the children would naturally engender curiosity so that the neighboring children would be attuned to gossip. Surely reporters would have investigated that aspect of the story.
It seems as though Mr. Fleeman simply put together public reporting and records without developing the background. I appreciate the need to separate reporting from editorializing, but my view is that effective true crime writing demands both.
I was provided with a digital copy of this book for an honest review, and am sorry I cannot provide a more positive reaction.
thank you Wild Blue Press for giving me the opportunity to review this book. The Author has done a great job.
There were some missing words but not anything I couldn't figure out.
Wildblue Press drew this author to my attention by asking for a review. If this book is typical of Mr Fleeman’s style, then all I can say is ‘send me more of his work!’
A free digital copy was provided by Wild Blue Press, and Michael Fleeman, for my unbiased review.
