The Wigwam Murder - Books
Sort order. Bizarre murder case. The case is covered in great detail up to and including the trial and sentencing. There is much discussion of Glover's mental illnesses which she would not treat or, when she did, combined her medication with alcohol and drugs. So she was allowed to be as wild and weird as she felt like.
It cannot have been much of a surprise when she pumped ten bullets into Bizarre murder case. It cannot have been much of a surprise when she pumped ten bullets into the man who loved her and protected her. The big question at her trial was how she could be declared sane when she was as crazy as an outhouse rat.
It's my understanding that sanity and insanity are legal terms, not a medical diagnosis. Medically she had mental disorders, but she knew shooting a man was wrong; therefore, she was sane in the legal sense. There is much interesting information, but the author repeated it over and over until I felt like a six-year-old kid with ADD. Aug 06, Shannon Renee rated it it was ok Shelves: true-crime. As I've said in other reviews, I am a true crime junkie.
I always appreciate an unique and complicated case.
Fatal Beauty succeeds and fails in this endeavor. I think Burl Barer has a excellent grasp on the complexities of the legal standings in this case. However, Burl desperately needs organization of his story structure and a really good editor.
His story flow was erratic, constantly changing, making it hard to read and really hard to enjoy. I don't know if I will read more by this author. Aug 28, Charlene rated it it was amazing Shelves: true-crime , criminology-justice. Finally, a true crime author who is logical, skeptical, fact based in their writing, and a good story teller.
This is the first true crime book I have read that is suitable for an academic.
Barer provides the reader not only with a discussion of the case, but engages in constant discussion about the state of the criminal justice system as it pertains to the case. This was not the most sensational crime a writer could choose.
However, I think Barer chose this case because it is an excellent forum Finally, a true crime author who is logical, skeptical, fact based in their writing, and a good story teller. However, I think Barer chose this case because it is an excellent forum to discuss NGRI not guilty by reason of insanity. The structure of the book laid out each part of the case -- leading up to the act, the act, the trial, the conclusion -- while perfectly weaving in real issues that plague the justice system. Each challenge to the justice system is what you would discuss if taking criminology coursework.
I wish every crime writer wrote like this. In this new edition of her bestselling book Wasted, true crime master Suzy Spencer chronicles a fatal love triangle--and lives driven out of control by sexual desire, drugs, and shocking childhood demons. A Twisted Road To Justice. Four years after Regina Hartwell's murder, a new charge was brought against one of her suspected killers.
Now, Suzy Spencer adds a new chapter to Wasted--detailing a killer gone wild, a nerve-wracking legal standoff, the shocking twists that would take place in a second, explosive trial.

You really feel like you know the characters and it has so much Suzy Spencer. Couldn't Put It Down! Spencer is the author of the extended New York Times bestseller Wasted -a true Texas tale about a rich lesbian, her beautiful young girlfriend and the killer who came between them. Clay Smith of the Austin Chronicle said that " Wasted is everything a true crime book should be: lean, fierce, and unsparing.
