Murder, culture, and injustice: four sensational cases in American history
Walter Hixson's pithy narrative account of four sensational national murder cases -- the Lizzie Borden, Lindbergh baby, Sam Sheppard, and O. J. Simpson trials -- offers interesting observations into the greater cultural and political forces that shaped their verdicts.
His step-by-step analysis of the details of each case provides not only insight by skillful synthesis of the existing literature but also a solid overview of the events surrounding these four cases, each of which became a national obsession as well as a miscarriage of justice.
