It’s the nature of true crime writing to get trolled, and troll reviews. It’s especially frustrating when apparently well meaning readers leave reviews like this:
Frustrating because at the same time CNN is knocking on your door and considering whether your work is worth featuring on their show.
Do you think reviews like that make HLN want to do an interview? If it was me, I wouldn’t.
Obviously less than one month after the crime has been committed there’s not going to be much evidence out there, especially with the police department in Frederick on lock down over leaks. If Two Face proves anything it’s how much we can know and find out from the available evidence before it’s fielded in court.
It’s also the purpose of this blog to provide updates on new evidence as and when it occurs. One example is the fact that the Watts children were last seen alive on Sunday at a birthday party held by Jeremy Lindstrom in Erie, and Chris was also there. These updates are published regularly at this link.
It’s the purpose of the second book in this series to place all these updates and collect all the available evidence in a follow-up narrative, a second book building on the efforts and analysis of the first.
In sum then, this is how I feel about reviews that kick you between the legs for making the first effort at an analysis. Hopefully better ones are in store.
