    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 would end, it was fascinating to see how the lawyers collected...

    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 bit distance 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 happened than 60 years ago,managed to grab the attention of readers.I for one had never heard of this case and yes there have been maybe cruel and infamous killings this case was really interesting thanks to the excellent writing of the author.Now I know there is another book about this case where that author thinks Abbott was innocent but checking the reviews of his book A Trail of Corn by Keith Walker , the majority of his readers still think Abbott was guilty, even after reading Walker s book view spoiler They his lawyers could only try to get him free by pretending that Abbott was framed They had to cause the girl s items were found in Abbott house and then later her body was ...

    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 police to her killer sooner It is chilling to think that Burton, a skinny, sickly and deceptively bland man, would certainly have gotten away with his crime and very possibly kept on killing had he not been stupid enough or arrogant enough to hide Stephanie s belongings in his own basement.The issue of Abbott s guilt or innocence is controversial even to this day, and though...

    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 even satisfyin...

    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 far appalling 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 excessive ingenuity can be logically explained.Moreover,Abbott, like Lizzie,was backed by independent witnesses with absolutely no axe to grind who,if believed, and they had no conceivable incentive for lying provided him and his automobile with an iron clad alibi.Both defendants had,and still have,a surprising and almost inexplicable charisma which s continues both to attract, and repel, quite intelligent people these long generations after their deathsMuch of the genuine fascination which both their almost unique cases hold,lies,of course, in the absolute certainty that if either defendant were innocent the jurors must, inevitably, have met the real killer or, at least, one other person who knew the truth of what happened very pr...

    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 items belonging to the missing girl are found in the Abbott s basement in Alameda He quickly becomes the focus of the investigation and too many coincidences come to light for there to be any doubt who killed the poor Bryan girl.The reader can t help but wonder what evidence might have been found if this case were being investigated today The case presents a very...

    on page 125 or so the author suggests a flaw in the defendant s alibi, says it is impossible to get lost in sacramento because the streets are laid out so well HA i ve done it three times of course i can get lost following a straight line maybe i shouldn t be bragging about thatinteres...

    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 1950s It s very sad, but very sensitively written Such a good a...

    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.

    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.
