What people are saying - Write a review
Most of the reviews of this book are contrived, just like the book and sound like the writer of the book asked all her friends and buddies to please post a cheap plug.
The books should be labeled Juvenile Fiction, not Juvenile Nonfiction.
A biased "non-fiction" book, which should be labeled as fictional propaganda because it intentionally dismisses and leaves out too many inconvenient facts about Leo Frank. This book is not suited for children, unless you want them to be duped about what really happened in the Leo Frank case.
'An Unspeakable Crime: The Prosecution and Persecution of Leo Frank' written by Elaine Marie Alphin commits the unspeakable crime of vociferous cheer-leading for child molester, rapist, strangler and convicted murderer Leo Frank.
By carefully and mendaciously manipulating the facts, circumstantial evidence and testimony in the Leo Frank case and trial, Elaine Marie Alphin utilizes red herring conspiracy theories and ignorant stereo types in an attempt to create false doubts about pedophile-murderer Leo Frank's guilt.
Despite the overwhelming evidence and testimony against Leo Frank, which clearly proves well beyond a reasonable doubt his guilt for murdering Mary Phagan, Elaine Marie Alphin joins the small group of political-propaganda writers who do an exceptionally good job spinning evidence, obfuscating facts and dismissing unimpeachable testimony and manipulating the case.
With blatant hypocrisy and deceitfulness, in the very same breath that she makes accusations of and about collective racism, anti-Semitism and bigotry against the good people of Georgia, she herself commits bigotry by making and stating broad sweeping generalizations and stereo types about Southerners, Christians and European-American as a whole.
This book is filled with cunning distortion and outright lies. In sum, the book is nothing more than bigoted, prejudiced, hate propaganda against European-Americans, Georgians, the US legal and justice system.
If you want a more balanced and even-handed book on the subject read, 'The Murder of Little Mary Phagan' written by Mary Phagan-Kean which can be downloaded for free on the Internet.
