Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
It's the oatmeal filler in your burger. If you have nothing else to read, this fills the gap.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The most interesting aspect of this story is that Whitey survived (so far) his own well-deserved violent death. The least interesting aspect about this story is: Whitey. The author provides no personality characteristics about him. Sure, I realize he's a cold blooded killer and so I didn't expect a lot of flowery warmth but this book was totally void of shedding light on who Whitey is/was (as opposed to what he did). Even a humdrum beach bum has moments of feeling and sharing joy, love, up's and down's. I think this is a failure on the part of the author.
What three words best describe Aaron Lyons’s performance?
It's just okay.
Was Whitey on Trial worth the listening time?
No. Newspaper articles and google reveal much more information and offer a great deal more insight into the characters, crimes, and Whitey's unraveling.
Any additional comments?
I am very disappointed with this book and wish I had the money I paid for it. I thought it was over priced but took a chance that it would be worth it. It isn't worth 1/4th what I paid. That's my 2 cents worth.
