4.0 su 5 stelle Thoughtful and emotional; a worthwhile read 12 agosto 2013
Di Christina Descaro - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Spurred on in part by an inaccurate account from Ann Rule, Larry Edwards sets the record straight about the mysterious deaths of his parents aboard the Spellbound near French Polynesia.

There are a few things I appreciated greatly about this book. For one, the author strives to be meticulous with his facts, yet he never does so at the expense of the emotional impact of the story, which is considerable. Something I often find to be missing from true accounts is a depth of empathy for the families of crime victims. This book does a tremendous job of showing how the consequences of violent death echo not just through the lifetimes of the survivors but through subsequent generations.

I could nitpick the writing of the book, but by the end, I came to the conclusion that Edwards is a gifted writer, even if his style is not always to my taste. The story is well-structured and engrossing, and the emotions ring clear and true.

I particularly recommend this story to anyone who has read previous accounts of the deaths of Loren and Jody Edwards and found them lacking in insight and follow-through. While the case may remain unprosecuted in perpetuity, the book provides a kind of closure.

While this book may not rank with the work of Mailer or Bugliosi, it's leagues above much true-crime writing and it provides an uncommon and valuable insight into the repercussions of violence from the perspective of someone who experienced it firsthand.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Compelling and Unsolved Mystery 15 ottobre 2013
Di Linda Schroeder - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Dare I Call It Murder? is a mystery story about two violent deaths with no reliable witnesses, no bodies, and no resolution. With this memoir, Larry Edwards pulls us with him on his thirty year quest to discover the details of how his mother and father died aboard their sailboat in the middle of the South Pacific. The boat was built by Edwards' father who for years hoped a trip across the ocean would unite his family in a grand adventure. Instead the boat became the setting for tragedy. This is not an easy-to-read story or a feel-good adventure. It is a memoir of grief.

And it is very compelling. We want to solve this mystery.

The pace of the book is rapid. Edwards' clear writing and careful placement of passages, like finely tuned fiction, keep us side by side with him as he frantically pieces together fragments of information, lies, and police ineptness. He is an experienced sailor and utilizes descriptions of weather, rigging, and charts for both narrative explanation and emotional context. So he gives us "the whispers in the rigging and the swoosh of the hull driving through black ocean swells," and "camaraderie drained out of the scuppers like cold seawater washing over the deck."

In the end, the mystery of his parents' deaths remains. Edwards' wish for justice is one we all share. That there is no justice in this story focuses the tragedy with great clarity.

Dare I Call It Murder? is well worth reading. Highly recommended

5.0 su 5 stelle Gut wrenching, extremely well written and insightful. 14 agosto 2013
Di Kath Tonkin - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I chose this book based on the favourable Amazon reviews and I was not disappointed. It was extremely well written for an autobiographical account. Larry apparently is a professional writer. As one of the children of 'alleged' murder victims, he sets out a well structured and compelling case for a murder and who committed the crime. I say 'may' and 'alleged' as tragically no-one has yet been charged and while I find Larry's account very authentic I dont want to jump the gun. Read the book and decide for yourself. The story also sets out decades of battles Larry faces in an attempt to discover what really happened on his parent's boat and also an ongoing hideous battle with his family to get support he needs to prove the case and find justice for his parents. The betrayals go on and on until you want to tell him to just stop trying for his own sake. I'm glad he didn't. If you think you have a dysfunctional family this may give you some perspective and you may relate to some of the deep frustration and anger he faces as he is randomly sideswiped by their selfishness. I cried in parts but I also found the book helpful and somewhat healing. Even though no-one in my family has murdered anyone, I can relate to Larry's struggle with family members who just don't have the compassion gene or any insight into what others are capable of. I know what it's like when half of the family takes the side of the One-Who-Smirks. I thank God in my case this person is not a sociopathic murder. Larry you are amazing, as is your wife. Knock off the booze for a bit buddy eh. You should try crime fiction novels if you are up to it? you are a great writer. I would love to read something else you have written. Maybe even True Crime? Properly researched. I hope you get justice one day.

5.0 su 5 stelle Intensely personal and engaging narrative 23 luglio 2013
Di Joyce Sullivant - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
At first glance, you would think this is another one of those fascinating true crime stories that so many of us like to read in our spare time. And it is. BUT there is much MORE to recommend this book. It is not only factual, but intensely personal as the author, who is the son of the "murder" victims, relates his struggle to come to emotional terms with his grief, anger, and frustration while trying to uncover the facts of the case. It is a story of childhood loss and family dynamic, of adult pain and regret. And this is not one of those "as told to..." narratives. Larry Edwards is a professional writer, and one helluva good one. His engaging style is sometimes eloquent and beautiful, other times effectively terse and sarcastic. One caveat ... Be prepared to give up a full day to read this narrative, because you will not be able to close the book until you have read the last word. And then set aside some time to reflect and shed a few tears.

5.0 su 5 stelle This books has it all. Mysterious deaths of 2 people and uncooperative witnesses aboard a boat in the ocean. 24 luglio 2013
Di Jill Lamb - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I couldn't put this book down. The true account of a man, Larry Edwards, whose parents died, or most likely murdered, while sailing the ocean with their other 2 children and a friend. The other brother, Gary, gives inconsistent statements about what happened and the daughter, Kerry, claims not to remember anything. The friend claims she slept through the whole thing. Why Gary wasn't arrested and charged with murder is mind boggling to me. The boat never should have been cleaned until the investigation was complete. Why wasn't this case investigated more thoroughly? This painful story is told by their son Larry, and it really lets the reader get into his thoughts and emotions. I felt his pain and sorrow. There isn't a statute of limitations for murder, and I am still hoping the family gets the justice they deserve.
