…to read Murder At Yale by Stella Sands.

Murder At Yale

It’s a true crime book, and I generally like true crime books.

But this one is a newpaper article in hardback.

Fact after fact presented in a boring manner.

247 pages of facts, near-facts, conjecture, and mediocre writing.

I know, “Hello, Pot, meet Kettle!”

But seriously, it’s just not all that good.

An intriguing story of the murder of Annie Le, a Yale Doctoral student.  Her body was found several days later, on what was to have been her wedding day, stuffed in an electrical chase in the 10 Amistad Building at Yale.

See, I said it was compelling.

The man accused, has not been tried.

Remember, this is America, and innocent until proven guilty still stands.

The author, Stella Sands, should remember that as well.

Her rush to judgement could guarantee him a mistrial;  a change of venue will do little good as most of America has heard of the murder of Annie Le.

Annie Marie Le

The heartbreaking story could have been a great book, but it isn’t.

Like I said, don’t bother!

ps. I’m in Hollywood, Florida today attending The Carmax President’s Club Gala Event, your comments may not be approved in a timely manner.  I’m not sure how much computer access I’ll have while partying!  And I’m going to be Facebookless for two days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
