Think you know what happened in the first Menendez brothers trial?
Read this book. Then YOU be the judge!
“A juror refutes some common misperceptions about the hopelessly deadlocked juries in the Menendez case… [Thornton] reveals in her lively, astute trial diary that Erik’s jury reached an impasse not on the issue of guilt, but on the charge…. Countering the notion that the jurors were hoodwinked and baffled by the parade of psychological experts, Thornton shows a firm grasp of the facts and of legal concepts like ‘burden of proof.’… A highly valuable resource for litigators, and a good read for the expanding army of trial buffs.”—Kirkus Reviews

You must be an Amazon customer to leave a review — and who isn’t? — but you need not have purchased this book from them. The first edition was never sold new on Amazon, a fledgling company in 1995. Therefore, people who read it back then never got a chance to write reviews. THANK YOU for doing so now!
