Actually, Take the 'really' out of 3 STARS and that's my reviews. Interesting.
tends to tell a little more or a little less about what really happened that October night.
Reading this collection is an interesting way to experience history. There's very little dramatic interpretation. Facts are revealed one by one as they were to your ancestors. It was truly the O.J. Simpsonlike murder trial of its day. In October '31 the trunks leaking blood at the Phoenix train station are reported. Then Judd is sought. Then Judd turns herself in. Then facts about her murdered friends are revealed. Then there's the trial and you visualize Judd trying to attack the alienist for the prosecution who's testifying how he thinks she's sane. Then there's the reports of how Judd escaped over and over from the mental hospital in Phoenix.
What's an alienist? One of the great things about reading this on a Kindle is that you can easily look it up. "Alienist" is an archaic term for psychiatrist. Another thing I learned was that "dementia praecox" means schizophrenia.
Archaic terms and all, I'm giving this collection four stars because I wanted to see photos beyond the cover drawing. Didn't the Star run any photos of the principles back in the day? If they did, they should have been included. If they didn't, shame on them. Pictures help tell the story.
