    Every single person in this book even the victims are a giant collection of irredeemable assholes That alone made this kind of a fun read.

    A very interesting story and a good read My only pet peeve was that in the book the victim was vilified and by whom Yes as always, by the killers The victims can t defend themselves it happens too often that authors accept the words of killers telling them how mean and bad the victims were.It is not that I want every victim to be presented as the good guy,girl but when an author only bases these things on the words of killers, I certainly do have a problem with it plus I feel that even if yo A very interesting story and a good read My only pet peeve was that in the book the victim was vilified and by whom Yes as always, by the killers The victims can t defend themselves it happens too often that authors accept the words of killers telling them how mean and bad the victims were.It is not that I want every victim to be presented as the good guy,girl but when an author only bases these things on the words of killers, I certainly do have a problem with it plus I feel that even if you are abused that is still not an excuse to take a human s life Now this author in the end of the book, did state that some things the killers said were lies so I hope he did research if their father really was such a bad guy I think he did that.All in all a very good book What horrible people Men and women and I wonder that if they had enough money they would have gotten away even with killing Glad I read it Did not know it was written so long ago

    This was a lightning fast and interesting read about a family torn apart by money, greed, corruption, lies, jealousy, and unbridled anger I thought it was a well researched and well written save for some noticeable typos in the Kindle edition true crime book that did not get bogged down in irrelevant details The author paints the main characters including one of the murder victims in a largely unflattering light and does an excellent job explaining the on again, off again relationship betw This was a lightning fast and interesting read about a family torn apart by money, greed, corruption, lies, jealousy, and unbridled anger I thought it was a well researched and well written save for some noticeable typos in the Kindle edition true crime book that did not get bogged down in irrelevant details The author paints the main characters including one of the murder victims in a largely unflattering light and does an excellent job explaining the on again, off again relationship between a scumbag father and the sons he molded into equally disgusting scumbags One of the murder victims, Vera Woodman, was a mostly sympathetic character, and I found myself alternating between thinking she should have left her husband and feeling sorry for the predicament she was in If nothing else, this book is a lesson on how to NOT conduct family affairs and a reminder that with wealth comes a responsibility to use it wisely and not as a tool for lording power over other people This is a solid book for readers of true crime, and it is somewhat unique among true crime books in that you will find yourself absolutely loathing one of the victims This has not been my experience with other true crime books

    Enjoyed isn t exactly the right word to say about a book that is concerned with a very unpleasant murder It was interesting to read about people whose background and experiences were so different to my own and I kept on reading to see if the people who were clearly responsible for the murder would be identified and convicted They were, which was satisfying.I disliked most of the people in the book even the ones who weren t the murderers were unattractive as personalities, even when their p Enjoyed isn t exactly the right word to say about a book that is concerned with a very unpleasant murder It was interesting to read about people whose background and experiences were so different to my own and I kept on reading to see if the people who were clearly responsible for the murder would be identified and convicted They were, which was satisfying.I disliked most of the people in the book even the ones who weren t the murderers were unattractive as personalities, even when their personalities were allowed to show, which wasn t all that often.I also thought it was a pity the IRS never got to go through that company s books properly I dislike tax evaders on principle.Downsides some of the people had multiple names which the writer seemed to use randomly He would have been better to note that some people usedthan one name, and then stick to one himself from then on It would have saved me a lot of confusion

    Yom Kippur Murders A good read about a crime one would expect to see on a two hour Dateline I was so enthralled with this story I went and looked it up, all true, every bit of it Tragically dysfunctional family horrible murder The author did an excellent job of tying all the pieces together and telling first about the crime itself, then the background of the victims and finally the trail of evidence that eventually lead to the arrests and convictions This was one of the first random boo Yom Kippur Murders A good read about a crime one would expect to see on a two hour Dateline I was so enthralled with this story I went and looked it up, all true, every bit of it Tragically dysfunctional family horrible murder The author did an excellent job of tying all the pieces together and telling first about the crime itself, then the background of the victims and finally the trail of evidence that eventually lead to the arrests and convictions This was one of the first random bookbub freebies I ever picked up I felt like I struck gold

    Good read, but .I read the first version of this book many years ago and the story is still compelling Even though Gerry Woodman was thoroughly despicable in every facet of his life, still no one deserves this kind of ending As far as sons Stewart and Neil are concerned taught at their father s knee forecast a bad outcome I have read a number of e books and allthan print have many grammatical and spelling errors I don t know if e books are prepared differently, but there were man Good read, but .I read the first version of this book many years ago and the story is still compelling Even though Gerry Woodman was thoroughly despicable in every facet of his life, still no one deserves this kind of ending As far as sons Stewart and Neil are concerned taught at their father s knee forecast a bad outcome I have read a number of e books and allthan print have many grammatical and spelling errors I don t know if e books are prepared differently, but there were manythan usual of errors in grammar, punctuation, and word use in this one

    BloodDysfunctional rich family at their worst I see why they killed them Gerry was nothing but a nasty bully I may have killed him, myself Vera seemed sweet enough but she had no backbone far as Gerry was concerned killed for insurance money A decent read but I don t really appreciate stories about over privileged people treating us normal folks badly

    I enjoy true crime stories, but this book could have been 100 orpages shorter so much of the book was boring filler I found myself skipping ahead trying to get to the important parts of the story.

    Bookbub s deal induced me to put this book on my Kindle Wolf is no Capote but it was never the less an interesting, often jaw dropping read It would have been better with some aggressive editing There were many details included that did not advance the story, only prolonged it
