3.5 The Devil's Gentleman by Harold Schecter
I found this true story of the first New York trial of the 20th century fascinating. I especially liked all the footnotes Schecter used to give further detail of a fact that he used in the story. I look forward to reading his other true crime stories.

While, Schechter has a talent for writing and trying to keep the reader interested, the story just got too bogged down in detials. Schechter wrote about people in the trial and the life of Roland that just did not matter. Which bogged down the book and just didn't move. Interesting stuff though!
