Wonderful story, not fair to sell as a full-priced book
Reviewed in the United States on November 2, 2018
Just like everything David Grann writes, this was a tremendously crafted and entertaining read, absolutely worth anyone's time regardless of your interests. But it was also little more than a couple of magazine articles edited together. I read the entire "book" on a one-hour train commute to work. That's absolutely not worth $11.99, particularly when his full-length "Killers of the Flower Moon" is the same price.
EDIT: After writing this review I discovered the original two articles that make up this book are still available on the New Yorker’s website - for free. In other words, you could use the Send to Kindle extension and read the exact same thing for $0 instead of $12. Seems grossly unfair.
