Critic Reviews

"The elegance of this book is that its axis is a resounding 'perhaps'... It is this moral ambivalence that draws readers to the true crime genre, and Safran nails it!" (Weekend Australian)
"Mississippi is like a trampoline for [Safran's] eccentricities. But the form and content of the story bring out an unfamiliar side of him." (Sydney Morning Herald)
"A winning combination of memoir, true crime and gonzo journalism...a compulsive summer read." (Sunday Mail)
"Funny and gripping and wonderfully weird.... It's a tremendous book. I can't praise it too highly." (Louis Theroux)
"Witty, insightful, compelling - In Cold Blood for our generation." (Eddie Perfect)
"[Safran] has written a marvellous book which I cannot put down." (Melbourne Observer)
"Now I know what to recommend people who liked Them." (Jon Ronson, author of The Men Who Stare at Goats and The Psychopath Test)
"Stunning." (Men's Style)

Safran's nasal lisp adds an extra layer of awkwardness to this moving , thought provoking , excruciatingly honest & hilarious story.

Not great

I love John Safran but this story was hardly worthy of writing a book about. Safran poorly attempts to fit the evidence to his narrative.
