Why do I have it? I like true crime and have never actually heard of the Ann Branson case.

When town native Ann Branson was found murdered in her basement in Madisonville, Kentucky townspeople were shocked. Crimes like murder just didn’t happen in Madisonville. It was unheard of. A retired federal agent, Ann’s nephew Jack Branson will not let his aunt’s case die; and it is unheard of to Jack that all clues in his aunt’s murder start to point to a member of his own family.

I have to say that the plot of this true crime book was a little slow for me and even though the crime was horrible, the writing was somewhat fanciful in parts. I give this story a B+!


B+! – (89-94%)
