Publisher's Summary

Catch a glimpse inside the mind of one of the most notorious murderers in recent memory - Lyle Menendez. The cold-blooded murder of Jose and Kitty Menendez shocked the nation. At first it seemed to be the work of the mob, but it soon became apparent that the murderers were their sons Lyle and Erik. Their first trial started a media frenzy and was filled with lurid details, but these never clearly explained why the brothers killed their parents. Now you can hear Lyle's own words as he talks to a middle-aged single mother, Norma Novelli, with whom he corresponded for years. Listen as he divulges many never before shared secrets to Norma, and then decide for yourself what caused the Menendez brothers to commit their horrifying crime.

Save your money & your sanity

Don't let the sample fool you. Most of the book consists of recorded telephone conversations of an egotistical and self-deluded Lyle Menendez. There's very little analysis of them and they very quickly become tiring and monotonous. The pandering of his female subject is annoyingly sickening.

Norma's story was compelling, Lyle's, not.

Absolute nonsense from the sick mind of a narcissistic sociopath fueled by evil and greed.
