This interesting historical event in book 67 was somewhat familiar to me already — having read and seen movies about them — but the author manages to make the story about the people involved a truly fascinating one. Even though the author never hides the truth or makes it mysterious from page one, there is still a sense of suspense: readers wonder how and when the world would find out the real events behind the hyped up story. I sense the author’s deep compassion toward all who were involved: their motivation, their odd passions, and their actions were all clearly delineated without boring long exposition paragraphs… the text and structure of the chapters flow naturally and keep the readers engaged. I find this an outstanding nonfiction!
