I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end. This author writes so well about events that happened in that particular era and is so spot on about habits, sayings, living styles and anything else you can name. It is a wonderful, can't-put-down book right to the very end. I would recommend it highly - particularly for anyone who lived through the 60's.
And of course, the murder of the little girl - pretty much the story of The Trial of Steven Truscott - though fictionalized, left me wondering how this would turn out. I would definitely give it 5 stars!
