Friday started off better, because my Wall Street Journal was nice and dry. My wife put in an online grocery order @ Wal-Mart and I said I’d go down and pick it up. While I waited, I read about Snapchapt’s IPO in the WSJ. It’s going to be huge, but analysts worry that it could go the way of Twitter’s IPO and become a fizzle later.
I finished Murder on a Lonely Road by George Pawlaczyk and Beth Hundsdorfer. I read the last 100 pages or so. The story grabbed me from start to finish and it was fine, low-rent reading. I’d give it 7/10 and recommend it to any true-crime fan.
The books’ major drawback is that it doesn’t do that much to “paint a portrait” of either the killer or the victim. My wife kept asking me why the killings took place and – other than the obvious answer that the guy was a serial killer – there is no insight. Still, not a bad, quick read.
