Very, very good book. The author explained why so many witnesses "saw" Laci on Christmas Eve. His explanation is spot on.
Rest in Peace..Although we never met....I Love You Both.
GOD LOVES YOUR PRECIOUS SOULS.
The entire foundation of the book rests on the opening, which points to a time ten years prior to the murder when Scott Peterson allegedly told a friend how to get rid of the body, yet 1. the link leads us to a news article that reveals that this statement could NOT be confirmed & came from an "interview" by the detective (who was already decided), 2. even if an identified person said this it would be hearsay & shouldn't be allowed into court, 3. it still doesn't show evidence of a crime. But this author is decided. I knew by page three this book had huge problems.
Not sure about the author's spruced up credentials, but he is not a lawyer, nor is he a psychologist, yet the book seems so confident to conclude on matters of the law and mind. This is not a research fact-based book. Links are not sources. What this is is a belief-based, emotional, and flawed argument sprinkled with pseudo-psychology, which carries over into book three. Justice is supposed to rely on logic and evidence.
He does a great job patching things together, but that's really all this is: a copy paste compilation of blogs & articles by others. And sadly there seems to be issues of plagiarism. The author needs to take a research class.
I read through his part II and part III as well. Authors of these books don't lose do they? Even with free Kindle unlimited reads, they still get a cut. Those follow up books are just as troubling. We're expected to believe that a person is guilty because they got mad that they burned the chicken on the BBQ? Or grew up a spoiled child? Leek makes references to other cases, in particular the Amanda Knox case, which he wrote at least one whole book about. Now that so much more information is available on Knox and she has been widely acquitted by the courts and the public, it is evident that this author is out for a killing. He produces these quick ebooks to profit off of tragedies that people are interested in. Not a bad business if that's all you're after.
Reading Nick’s work though, is more like being invited into the case as a detective or psychological consultant. You are taught how to immerse yourself in the subject and think about it from a kaleidoscope of perspectives, even some that may make you uncomfortable or that you disagree with.
He delves into not only the victim and perpetrator, but also the other characters of their lives and the relationships between them. He challenges his reader to see similarities and differences of human behavior in each person of a specific case individually, as part of the whole of the story, in true crime overall and perhaps more frighteningly, in ourselves.
This style is what makes this book, and all of his other series, not light beach weekend reading, but more akin to signing up for a college course on true crime. It’s also what sets him apart from all other authors of this genre. This is a book that hones your critical thinking, to see the world and human behavior differently and encourages you to grow as a human. Growth can be uncomfortable but it is worthwhile. He also offers his readers opportunities to engage with him directly on YT and other forums, so you will gain much more than just a book. I promise if you are open minded, it will have a lasting impact. And you will be glad you found this professor of true crime.
