Of public suspicion and an affluent tranuil city torn apart by a crime it couldn't handle Perfect Murder Perfect Town uncovers the mysteries that have bewildered the nationWhy were the Ramseys the targets of t. Monsters or monstrously unluckyThis is a book about three distinct yet intimately interrelated stories told as one First there is the story of the murder of JonBen t Ramsey second the story of the investigation of that murder and the antagonism between the Boulder Police Department and the District Attorney s office and third the media coverage of these eventsI think Schiller does a workman like job on all three but for readers primarily interested in the story of the murder of JonBen t this book at about 800 pages is a bit too much For those interested in the politics and pecking order of the judicial system as practiced in Boulder Colorado this is probably a fascinating read from cover to cover The story of the media is also interesting but too narrowly focused on the tabloid coverage especially the material about Jeff Shaprio then working for the Glob

Perfect Murder Perfect TownThe Uncensored Story of the JonBenet Murder and the Grand Jury's Search for the Final Truth

In Perfect Murder Perfect Town Lawrence Schiller thoroughly recreates every aspect of the complex case of the death of JonBenét Ramsey A brilliant portrait of an inscrutable family thrust under the spotlight. Although this crime did not get as much coverage in the UK as it obviously did in the States I was aware of the murder of six year old JonBenet Ramsey although I knew few of the details This is a fairly lengthy book which delves into the case and concentrates on the investigation into the murderSix year old JonBenet was discovered missing from her bed the morning after Christmas Day 1996 when her mother Patsy discovered a rambling ransom note on the stairs Despite the note saying her daughter had been kidnapped and that she would be killed if anyone was informed Patsy and her husband John Ramsey immediately called the police Their open presence at the family home was the first in a series of errors and it is difficult not to imagine that the fact the family were wealthy was one reason why the police initially trod carefully not containing the crime scene

He investigation able to control the direction of the police inuiryCan the key to the murder be found in the pen and writing pad used for the ransom noteWas it possible for an intruder to have killed JonBenét. I enjoyed shouting Ghoul at Scott as he tried to read this surreptitiously in the Lufthansa business lounge in Denver But it is a good book if verging on the obsessive in terms of the detail sought out If someone farted in a restaurant and it had made a sound vaguely similar to someone grumbling JonBenet it would have been reverently noted here Worse the police would have followed it up in an effort to divert the criticism of their early handling of this case It seems almost every effort was made and a lot of it futile effort in the wrong direction at the wrong time I won t find out though as I ve kind of lost interest because I know how it all ends with no one being any the wiser and because the book has just become too obsessive on the detail

    Much like the infamous Boy in the Box case the tragic story of JonBenet Ramsey has gripped the nation In actuality these cold cases in the US featuring missingmurdered children occur a lot I suspect many of those cases rema

    Schiller writes a 600 page book on the JonBenet murder and at the end says he has no idea who killed her He doesn't even give a hypothetical scenario His non committal summation reads as if he was concerned about not being hit with a law suit from the killer for slanderIf you are interested in reading about this case I would say to look elsewhereThere are websites with the same if not information

    I had a deadline recently and so spent about 9000 hours obsessively reading everything available on the internet about the Ramsey case Then once I'd read all that I bought and read this book which contains much less than everything on the internet I think I learned one or two little things a mysterious phone call from John to a hardware store about Patsy Ramsey's credit card bill which turned out to have been made by a tabloid re

    A loooong book I forced myself to read all of it even though I knew there wouldn't be any resolution in the end I guess I picked it up for the same reason most people do I wanted to learn as much as I could about this unsolved case and see if I could draw my own conclusions I did learn a few things that I did not know before reading it but most surprising were the grand missteps taken by the Boulder PD in the hours and days after the murd

    Monsters or monstrously unlucky?This is a book about three distinct yet intimately interrelated stories told as one First there is the story of the murder of JonBenét Ramsey; second the story of the investigation of that murder and the antagonism between the Boulder Police Department and the District Attorney's office; and third the media coverage of these eventsI think Schiller does a workman like job on all three but for readers prima

    Now that we know the Grand Jury voted to indict it changes everything I was actually on a jury coming out of the courthouse in Boulder when the DA announced there would be no indictment The way he phrased it made it sound as if that was from the Grand JuryThe Ramsey's destroyed a lot of lives in Boulder and elsewhere Looking at t

    I got 57% of the way through this before calling it uits I love true crime stories and length of book isn't daunting for a speed reader but this book is frankly a bore after the first 200 pages As one other apt reviewer put it If someone farted within the vicinity of someone who knew Jonbenet it's documented here The constant asides and first person recollections detract from the narrative utterly and completely Not suited for someone readi
