“Another winning true-crime volume from Rick Geary. No surprise there, as Geary’s made a long and successful career of this type of comics.
In addition to presenting all the evidence in a clear and precise narrative, Geary’s art is perfectly suited to this type of factual accounting. His representational pen-and-ink drawings couch the events in historically accurate and detailed drawings of the world and times of the murder.
He’s a splendid visual storyteller, moving his “camera” around to capture aspects of a crime scene perfectly. Hand-drawn diagrams enforce key points, such as the approach the murderer likely took to Taylor’s house or the angle of the bullet when it penetrated the victim’s coat and vest.”
