Product description

From Booklist

Nelson's aunt, whom she never met, was brutally killed in 1969 and thought to be part of the infamous "Michigan Murders." Three decades later, DNA evidence leads investigators to a new suspect on the eve of the publication of Nelson's own personal investigation, a book of poetry about her aunt titled Jane (2005). This causes Nelson to reexamine the effect her aunt's murder had on her family and their habits (an understandable aversion to violence against women in movies, for example). Alternating between the current trial and her family history, Nelson's account is lucid, her head clear, and her writing strong. Memories of her childhood--particularly of her father, who died when she was a girl--are the most emotionally charged elements. But her wry and honest account of the clownish calamity of the courtroom and the impending media circus (Nelson was on 48 Hours Mystery) are also affecting. Given the popularity of crime TV, this is a much-needed reminder of the long, painful aftermath of heinous crimes. Emily Cook
