took interest in this book because it is a true crime, and because I am an author of a true crime myself.
Dr. Jeffrey MacDonald had everything going for him. He had a great career, great family, and good looks. Everything went topsy-turvy when his pregnant wife and two daughters were murdered in their home. Jeffrey was injured, but alive. For some odd reason, he couldn’t keep from talking about the attack. He would go over the details to everyone and anyone. The story he told about the killings sounded a lot like the Manson family had invaded the condominium and slaughtered the family.
As time passes, Jeffrey’s story just doesn't add up. Jeffrey’s dead wife’s stepfather was his staunch defender until he became suspicious of Jeffrey, and refused to give up his quest to get justice.
Being a victim of crime, I learned that sometimes a member of the family must relentlessly pursue justice if there is going to be any kind of justice achieved.
The electrifying true story of Dr. Jeffrey MacDonald had been on National TV, and a lot of people have heard, seen or know the story.
However, Joe McGinniss does a marvelous job of writing and telling the story.
Reading the brilliant way he wrote this book makes you think you are sitting in the courtroom, holding your breath until you hear the jury’s verdict.
The book is 977 pages, but it is worth your money, and time. At least that is my verdict on “Fatal Vision.”
