  1. This is a well written true crime account of the kidnapping and murder of 14 year old Stephanie Bryan in 1955 The story is laid out in a concise manner without too many details that often bog down a non fiction book I was amazed at all the excuses lawyers and family members tried to find in order to explain Stephanie s purse, school books, and bra that were buried in the suspect s basement Even though it was clear how the story wou...

  2. Finished it this morning This book had been on my wish list for many years till finally managed to buy a secondhand copy I can say it was worth the wait.Maybe not as gripping as some true crime books, Harry Farrell writes with a bitdistance but you must not forget that when he finally got all the documents and trial papers, a lot of people who played a big role in the Abbott case had already died.It is much harder probably to write about a case that happened long ago, I think of Harold S Finished it this morning This book had been on my wish list for many years till finally managed to buy a secondhand copy I can say it was worth the wait.Maybe not as gripping as some true crime books, Harry Farrell writes with a bitdistance but you must not forget that when he finally got all the documents and trial papers, a lot of people who played a big role in the Abbott case had already died.It is much harder probably to write about a case that happened long ago, I think of Harold Schechter s great books but I can truly say this author did just as well.A good writer who even though the case happenedthan 60 years ago,managed to grab the attention of readers.I for one had never heard of this case and yes there have been maybecruel and infamous killings this case was really interesting thanks to the excellent w...

  3. Shallow Grave is an incredibly detailed, day by day account of the disappearance of fourteen year old Stephanie Bryan in 1955, and the subsequent search for her and the trial and execution of her presumed murderer, a young accounting student named Burton Abbott Methods to find missing children were very primitive back then compared to now if Stephanie had been kidnapped today, an Amber Alert would probably have been issued and while it might not have saved her, it certainly would have lead pol Shallow Grave is an incredibly detailed, day by day account of the disappearance of fourteen year old Stephanie Bryan in 1955, and the subsequent search for her and the trial and execution of her presumed murderer, a young accounting student named Burton Abbott Methods to find missing children were very primitive back then compared to now if Stephanie had b...

  4. A fascinating read with great personal resonance for me, because the author casually revealed midway through the book that the victim was not only the first cousin of someone I grew up with, but also the niece of my dad s boss It was evensatisfying than average to read...

  5. The extremely controversial Abbott case fair bids to go down along side the Borden case as a classic American study in ambiguity,hysteria,and lurking hints of subsurface malevolence which suggest farappalling evil than evan the original crime.As in the Borden case,we have the situation of a well liked young person of some intellectual ability Lizzie was the first woman to ever sit on the board of an American hospital caught in a web of circumstances,all of which with a bit of perhaps exce The extremely controversial Abbott case fair bids to go dow...

  6. As a Bay Area native, this book was pretty spellbinding as a criminal case study with lots of local history and trivia thrown in I mean, Earl Stanley Gardener even makes a cameo at the courthouse near Lake Merritt The book stands alone, though, as a well crafted tale of true crime Burton Abbott is as enigmatic a character as any fictitious villain The opening scene which takes place months after Bryan s disappearance seems to cast a great shadow of guilt over Abbott from the very beginning As a Bay Area native, this book was pretty spellbinding as a criminal case study with lots of local history and trivia thrown in I mean, Earl Stanley Gardener even makes a cameo at the courthouse near Lake Merritt The book stands alone, though, as a well crafted tale of true crime Burton Abbott is as enigmatic a character as ...

  8. Another very interesting true crime story about one of the first serial killings in the Bay Area Farrell does a great job at explaining how innocent people were then, and how unusual this type of crime was for the times The 1...

  9. This book was a little too distant I never felt like I knew the victim, or the alleged murderer for that matter The most interesting aspect was the way laws have improved to protect the accused, and also the difficulty in gathering evidence before DNA testing.

  10. This is the non fiction story of a fourteen year old girl who was kidnapped and murdered in Berkeley, California in 1955 My oldest brother was in the same grade in school as this girl s brother so I was aware of this tragedy during my childhood.
