Dick Hickock and Perry Smith confessed to the first: the November 15, 1959 murder of a family of four in Holcomb, Kansas. Despite remarkable coincidences between the two crimes, they denied committing the second: the December 19 murder of a family of four in Osprey, Florida.
Over half a century later, a determined Florida detective undertakes exceptional efforts to try to bring closure to the long-cold case.

So much lost potential here
Obviously the lost potential of the people who were murdered..... (that should not be a spoiler)
This COULD HAVE BEEN a better book. Perhaps someone else will do the deep dive on this crime at some point. I honestly thought the reader was a computer generated voice. Which is a TERRIBLE way to treat such a subject matter. This needs someone with empathy, with sympathy. Someone who can convey through tone and inflection the horror of what happened. Instead we get the emotion of the recitation of a grocery list.
Get the Kindle book, skip the audiobook.

Worst reader not the best writing...interesting subject
Thank goodness this book was short or I never would have put up with the reader. Weird pauses and a breathiness that annoyed.
The writing.....I am picky and thought some word choices were questionable: over and over “semen on the back of Christine’s panties” better....DNA collected at the site. Yea...picky.
I listened to the whole thing and enjoyed it.
