At night, I needed another book. So, I settled on God’ll Cut You Down by John Safran. It’s about an Australian journalist who gets tangled up in the mess over the murder of a white supremacist in Mississippi. So far, it’s really good.
Interestingly, I also got a comment on an old review that I’d posted on the blog about O’Neil D’Noux’s true-crime book (Specific Intent) about a murder in Louisiana. One of the deputies who was involved in the case – made a comment and said that many of the problems with the book were the result of the insistence of the editor.
The review and the comments are here –
