Casey Cep was able to piece together this true story about a serial killer and the story of Harper Lee who had sat through the trial collecting all the information with the idea of writing a book about this case.

I think there just wasn’t enough story there for Harper Lee to turn it into a book, but her presence added the element that made it work for Cep. The section on Lee was very interesting and a bit heart breaking

I learned a lot! A lot about Lake Martin, life insurance, Alabama politics, the voodoo reverend, and especially Nelle Harper Lee!
