    It was interesting, and definitely edgy for 1958, but it was written in this pedantic, good old boys, kind of style that drive me mad If you like courtroom drama, AND you don t mind a man s man type style and you re not too hung up on getting to the story quickly, this will be a great book to read If any of those things annoy you, stay away.
