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.
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
