    One thought on “When the Husband is the Suspect”

    1. This was a good read, well summarized and fast moving The author never bogs down in legal minutiae, although he does do some fancy footwork around the issue of the defendant s guilt if it was someone he defended personally He pulls no punches with the rest of them I would have given this 5 stars if some of the cases were less well known and if the cases were a little less repetitive of things we have all heard on the news a dozen or times already.

    2. Most of these cases I ve heard of, and considering the author is a defence attourney I wasn t surprised by the bias slant to some of the cases Some of the men mentioned, with the evidence supplied seem as guilty as sin, others however I could go either way and then there is the poor guy at the end who is innocent His fiancee disappears, but is eventually tracked down.

    3. Too many italics I would have read it sooner but this book was classified in the 345 criminal law instead of 364 criminology section of the library Good subject choice, because now F Lee Bailey can begin a series targeting the wife as the suspect, or the children who kill parents neighbors strangers So many good cases to use probably not as well known, which makes it interesting.

    4. What can I say Sometimes it s interesting to wallow in the gutter, and with F Lee Bailey, no less Note to Mr Bailey if 1 out of 3 women s homicides are at the hands of their husbands or boyfriends, that does NOT mean that statistically, he is often than not the culprit p 270 Read your own statistics, sir one out of three, not two out of three or three out of three Sorry, feeling cranky today

    5. Readers expecting that Bailey one of the best known criminal defense attorneys of the last half century would provide insight into spousal homicide will be disappointed by this book, which adds nothing fresh to our understanding of the 20 cases discussed.The case studies including some of the most prominent examples of accused wife killers, such as O.J Simpson, Robert Blake, Sam Sheppard, Scott Peterson, Claus Von B low and Jeffrey MacDonald are presented in chronological order, but the chapters [...]

    6. True crime, why do you have such a hold on me I am so easily sucked into the trashiest true crime histories, and this is the trashiest a compendium of murder cases where the husband or ex husband of the deceased is the prime suspect The writing is spare but to the point I could have done without the completely kid gloved recounting of the O.J Simpson case the author was on O.J s defense team, and spent much of the chapter repeating his defense arguments, rather than analyzing the particulars of [...]

    7. Each suspect receives a full chapter and the chapters are in chronological order There were many husbands who I had never heard of before, or that I knew a little about and I found those chapters the most interesting I have read complete books on many of the husband suspects profiled, so I found those chapters the least informative and leaving a great deal of information out The book does a good job on casting some doubt on certain husband suspects who were found guilty Overall it s a very inter [...]

    8. I guess I was expecting a bit from this book, but it is condensed down I did find in interesting enough to want to do research on some of the suspects, so it gave me a taste of the stories, but also left me sometimes wanting I do think though that it was better written than many true crime works which tend to repeat themselves over and over in order to fill the pages By diversifying and having 20 ish suspects Bailey was able to provide a full length book without repetition.

    9. This giveaway win is an interesting insight into infamous murder stories There are inside parts of the stories which were not stated to the public This book also shows how when a novice does the killing, it becomes obvious even if it take years to convict the husband A good and interesting read.

    10. Not a bad little true crime book There was a decent number of cases throughout, and although some were rushed, others the notorious cases were detailed in great length I think the O.J trial should have been left of however, as F Lee Bailey was a proponent of OJ s innocence, and it was a bit of a conflict of interest for the book Worth reading however

    11. The only reason I gave this book one star is because I have to lol I did not like this book at al it was very boring and I couldn t get into it I kept reading hoping that it would get better but no such luck lol.

    12. Like true crime occasionally this one had cases in it which I have read entire books on nothing too new or differantAn OK true crime read

    13. I started this last night It is very dry so far I read the chapter on Claus von Bulow, and there was some evidence I hadn t read about before.

    14. Interesting book Has a synopsis of a case dealing with the husband as a suspect Not one I would read again but good.
