Wow, this is one the best books I’ve read in quite a while, just a fascinating account of Robert Durst, a wealthy error to the Durst family fortune of real estate wealth in New York City. I couldn’t get enough of this book! As we followed Robert Durst throughout his childhood in New York City, through his first marriage, (which ended with his wife mysteriously missing, and still not found), to his time in Galveston Texas (where he chopped up a neighbor friend of his and try to rid himself of the evidence), out to Beverly Hills in California, where one of his best friends, was seemingly “executed”. So many unanswered questions, but just a great book and a great accounting of such.
The only drawback for me anyway, since this was an audiobook, was having to listen to Judge Jean Pirro (she has her own television show on Fox News) narration throughout the book, with her often grating, cynical, and obviously personal agenda) and tracking down Robert Durst and bringing him to justice.
The book would’ve been all that much better without having to listen to Judge Pirro at the same time.
Anyway, I’m here to give a an overall view of my thoughts on the book, not the author anyway.
If you like good crime dramas, and this one is a true life crime drama, you’ll like this one!
There was a good series of documentaries “The Jinx” recently on cable, which I’m sure you can pull up if you type in “Robert Durst”, that really gives a great account as well of this story.
Enjoy it for what it’s worth! I thought it was excellent!
