after I finished this book 'sun bleached flies' came on my Spotify randomly and I had to fight to not sob like a maniac. Both a beautiful biography, incisive memoir, and a piece of writing about women in academia that in parts made me so angry I had to get up and pace around the room to calm myself. Will be recommending to everyone I know!!

This is the first true crime book I've read that doesn't read like a true crime story. The murder was solved in 2017 using modern DNA testing yet the book wades through over 400 pages of the story of Jane's life, Becky's life, and everyone involved in Jane's life at the time of the murder. It's an interesting read but casting doubt on some of the individuals surrounding Jane at the time became tiresome so - I admit it - I went to Wiki to find out the rest of the story. When on page 317 we were still hearing about possible murderers, I had to get the rest of the story.

A very thoroughly researched true crime story that sucked me in from the first page. There are so many elements to this story that are fascinating: a mysterious death of a young woman - violent murder! Harvard in 1969 at the height of counterculture. Archeological digs and Indiana Jones-like professors as possible suspects. Police corruption. Misogyny. A curious undergrad that decides to dive into the research and tell the story. Any true crime fans should check this out. Highly recommend!
