  1. The ubiquitous Lawrence Schiller was born in 1936 in Brooklyn, and grew up in San Diego After graduating from Pepperdine College, he went to work for Life Magazine and the Saturday Evening Post as a photojournalist His photographic abilities, both technical and artistic, laid the foundation for what has become nothing less than an astonishing career Schiller first made his name by photographing popular culture icons such as Sophia Loren, Richard Nixon, Timothy Leary, O.J Simpson, James Earl Jones, Barbara Streisand, Paul Newman, Robert Redford, John F Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Joe DiMaggio and Clint Eastwood, just to name a few.He moved easily through contrasting public worlds, developing stories for Life Magazine while shooting nude photographs for Hugh Heffner and Playboy Magazine Schiller was always at the forefront, and always at the right place at the right time, experiencing historical events and developing relationships that would launch his career onto a path of success in a variety of mediums.He published his first book, LSD , in 1966 Since then he has published eleven books, including W Eugene Smith s Minamata and Norman Mailer s Marilyn He collaborated with Albert Goldman on Ladies and Gentleman, Lenny Bruce and with Norman Mailer on The Executioner s Song and Oswald s Tale He has directed seven motion pictures and mini series for television.From 1996 through 2002, Mr Schiller published four books that became national bestsellers American Tragedy , Perfect Murder, Perfect Town , Into the Mirror , and Cape May Court House All made the New York Times Bestseller List American Tragedy , Perfect Murder, Perfect Town and Into the Mirror were made into television mini series for CBS Mr Schiller produced and directed each of the motion pictures.Other motion picture credits are Double Jeopardy , The Plot to Kill Hitler , The Executioner s Song , Peter the Great , Murder By Reason of Insanity , Her Life As a Man , The Patricia Neal Story , Child Bride of Short Creek , Marilyn, The Untold Story , The Winds of Kitty Hawk , Hey, I m Alive , The Trial of Lee Harvey Oswald and The Man Who Skied Down Everest.Lawrence Schiller s projects have won countless awards, including seven Emmys and an Oscar for his work over the years He is a consultant to NBC News and has recently written for The New Yorker and George magazines.Schiller s haunting and beautiful portfolio of photographs of Marilyn Monroe is from the last professional photo session of the sex goddess, while making Something s Got to Give in 1962 She was fired from the movie and was dead two months later Almost a half a century has passed since May 1962, and still these astonishing, daring, and beautifully crafted photographs never available as limited editions, until now continue to captivate and enthrall us.His collection of images chronicling America in the 1960 s is an important document of our time With daring forthrightness, a decade of turmoil, creativity and entertainment is unrolled before our eyes Schiller s uncanny ability to be in the right place at the right time, affords us the privilege of surveying all of this history, captured with succinct and powerful images that have defined and continue to define the national conversation.

  2. I decided to take one criminal case as my true crime project I had only two requirements for the case I would choose 1 A high profile case that would have a lot of written works made out of it, which would provide me information as much as possible without actually being able to review every single evidence and police report ever written 2 It would need to be a case I have no personal opinion about, but it would have a strong following and opinion field by other human beings such as professional [...]

  3. Schiller writes a 600 page book on the JonBenet murder and at the end says he has no idea who killed her He doesn t even give a hypothetical scenario His non committal summation reads as if he was concerned about not being hit with a law suit from the killer for slander.If you are interested in reading about this case, I would say to look elsewhere.There are websites with the same, if not information.

  4. Although this crime did not get as much coverage in the UK as it obviously did in the States, I was aware of the murder of six year old JonBenet Ramsey although I knew few of the details This is a fairly lengthy book which delves into the case and concentrates on the investigation into the murder.Six year old JonBenet was discovered missing from her bed the morning after Christmas Day, 1996, when her mother Patsy discovered a rambling ransom note on the stairs Despite the note saying her daughte [...]

  5. I had a deadline recently and so spent about 9000 hours obsessively reading everything available on the internet about the Ramsey case Then once I d read all that, I bought and read this book, which contains much less than everything on the internet I think I learned one or two little things a mysterious phone call from John to a hardware store about Patsy Ramsey s credit card bill which turned out to have been made by a tabloid reporter , an interesting tidbit about the professor who did the ps [...]

  6. Now that we know the Grand Jury voted to indict, it changes everything I was actually on a jury, coming out of the courthouse in Boulder when the DA announced there would be no indictment The way he phrased it made it sound as if that was from the Grand Jury.The Ramsey s destroyed a lot of lives in Boulder, and elsewhere Looking at the fresh evidence, and the old evidence, it s very likely their son killed her and then they covered it up Many people paid the price of that coverup A tragedy compo [...]

  7. Schiller, Lawrence Perfect Murder, Perfect Town 1999 Monsters or monstrously unlucky This is a book about three distinct, yet intimately interrelated stories, told as one First, there is the story of the murder of JonBen t Ramsey second, the story of the investigation of that murder and the antagonism between the Boulder Police Department and the District Attorney s office and third, the media coverage of these events.I think Schiller does a workman like job on all three, but for readers primari [...]

  8. A loooong book I forced myself to read all of it even though I knew there wouldn t be any resolution in the end I guess I picked it up for the same reason most people do I wanted to learn as much as I could about this unsolved case, and see if I could draw my own conclusions I did learn a few things that I did not know before reading it, but most surprising were the grand missteps taken by the Boulder PD in the hours and days after the murder I would not recommend this book to anyone who does no [...]

  9. Running over 600 pages long, I knew this book would either be a detailed though riveting read or it would be a hard slog Unfortunately, for me, it was the latter.Naturally, it was interesting to read about the events, the evidence found, the investigations, the interviews, the media, and the prime suspects the parents , the city of Boulder, etc but there was by far too much detail , in general Also, a lot of the book was dedicated to the issue of the hostilities between the police and the DA s o [...]

  10. I enjoyed shouting Ghoul at Scott as he tried to read this surreptitiously in the Lufthansa business lounge in Denver But it is a good book, if verging on the obsessive in terms of the detail sought out If someone farted in a restaurant and it had made a sound vaguely similar to someone grumbling JonBenet , it would have been reverently noted here Worse, the police would have followed it up in an effort to divert the criticism of their early handling of this case It seems almost every effort was [...]

  11. I got 57% of the way through this before calling it quits I love true crime stories, and length of book isn t daunting for a speed reader, but this book is frankly a bore after the first 200 pages As one other apt reviewer put it, If someone farted within the vicinity of someone who knew Jonbenet, it s documented here The constant asides and first person recollections detract from the narrative utterly and completely Not suited for someone reading multiple books at once due to lack of chapters o [...]

  12. 832 pgs I give this 3 out of 5 stars Seemed to go off topic too much Went into detail on how the victim was found, the parents, some of the suspects, as well as the tabloids who posed as friends potential church members etc in order to gain info on the victims family and or anything to do with the crime This a disappointing read b c it seemed to go topic too much telling the reader how the town of Boulder grew into the town that it is today, where the investigators come from, what they did befor [...]

  13. Well, it s taken over 2 years of perseverance, and bite sized chunks on and off was the only way for me to do it but I m so glad I did This is a meticulously presented an unkind reviewer might say tediously catalogue of this tragic case, the dramatis personae, the investigation and the behind the scenes politics involved Those seeking sensationalism will be bored to death within 50 pages Those interested in facts should stick with Just don t expect any hypothesis at the end of it some form of co [...]

  14. I am officially dumping this book after just over 200 pages I just can t get into it I feel like I have to keep notes just to keep all the key players straight.It s no wonder this crime was never solved I can t decide if the author is trying to illustrate how seriously messed up the investigation was Talk about a bunch of bungling idiots And it doesn t paint a pretty picture of the media either As a former journalist myself, I m pretty horrified at some of the tactics described in this book if t [...]

  15. There is so much of this case that will never be understood But it was the incompetency of the Denver police to secure the crime scene and avoid evidence contamination that led to much of the media speculations at the time, as well as the Ramsey s behavior They ACTED guilty At least of being afraid they could be held accountable So of course, they became accountable in the public s eyes anyway This book does a good job of pointing out what went wrong in the investigation and how things seemed to [...]

  16. I didn t know anything about the JonBenet murder, and wanted a Serial type story to take me away This book was VERY long and to be honest I skimmed a lot but for those who want to get invested and familiar with ALL the details they definitely don t leave anything out After 1000 pages, naturally, we still don t know who committed the crime always a let down, but fair It s safe to say that there was some gross negligence from the police and the lack of co operation from the family comes off VERY s [...]

  17. Bored, bored, bored, bored, bored I know that the Jon Benet Ramsey case was never solved, but the author could have at least spun a THEORY on what he thought might have happened Instead, this book was a chronological spewing of facts on the case from the week of the crime until present It was nothing I didn t already know and a huge disappointment.My sincere apologies to all members of my book club who endured this read

  18. I really hope this is the most insufferably overly detailed yet interminably boring book in the genre of revealing dirty truths , because if it isn t, there exists one that is worse, and I might accidentally buy it and try to read it Nonetheless it gets two stars for being at least factual in between the lengthy interviews and statements that add exactly zero information except that yet another neighbour thought they were a nice family.

  19. This book was sooooooo long, I found it quite boring actually I did finish it, but it took my quite a while

  20. What a bore And no real theory as to what happened I wanted theories Crazy out there thought provoking theories Back to the world of Internet conspiracy cover ups for me

  21. Will this book ever end I gave up I d rather watch a documentary or read a shortened version of events with some analysis not just a fact timeline spewing.

  22. I find it AMAZING that someone could take such a fascinating case and make it so torturously boring Pass.

  23. I began reading this because the pickings are slim around here and I have a slight obsession with articles about cold cases Well, maybe than slight The details of the crime were just as horrible Actually, so with how in depth you learn about what someone did to her it s hard to fathom such brutality towards a child and very disturbing to read as I had thought I remembered, having been a teenager at the time and not really following it but absorbing the media frenzy anyway To some extent it was [...]

  24. I m fascinated by this case and have read several books about it I found this one to be the best in the sense that I think it s the most comprehensive and, in fact, exhaustive it takes a long time to plow through this one One of the interesting things about this case is the fact that everyone involved blames someone else, including the authors of the various books that have been written in some cases they even criticize each others books I ll just say that there s enough shoddy investigation, s [...]

  25. I have mixed feelings about true crime reading detailed descriptions of awful things makes me feel sleazy and slightly guilty However, this book opens with the horrifyingly weird circumstances of JonBenet s abduction, so I found it difficult to quit, even when I wanted to And I did want to the book is exhaustively researched and exhausting to read on an emotional level The investigation was such a giant bureaucratic mess that I wanted to reach through the book and the shake the participants the [...]

  26. Although I appreciate the author s efforts to present an unbiased and complete record of the Jonbenet Ramsey murder and investigation, I felt he had too much of an agenda to properly to so.There are a lot of facts in this book But the author also ignores a lot to suit his purpose I felt the author sided too much with the DA office and the media Many of the newspaper and magazine articles are unnecessary and the ones provided are heavily influenced I try to read everything about a subject I m int [...]

  27. On the cover blah Like Norman Mailer sThe Executioners Songand Truman Capote sIn Cold BloodSchiller sPerfect Murder, Perfect Townwill be considered a assicI don t think so.This has taken me forever to read, I mean months because quite honestly it isn t very good.The author interviewed just about everyone involved Then wrote it down without really making an attempt to craft it into a readable book I don t read a lot of true crime but this really didn t seem to be well executed despite the obvious [...]

  28. This book is long It is full of details which is great in true crime however some of these details had nothing to do with the case This book is equally about the city and politics of boulder which is probably why it is titled the way it is I did learn some new stuff to the case and am so torn by the way it was handled wondering if different and earlier interviews as well as evidence that wasn t collected in time could have resulted in a different outcome Sorry for all involved and the terrible t [...]

  29. Incredibly thorough hello, 750 pages I did not expect look into the JonBenet Ramsey case, which remains unsolved It s interesting and horrifying and depressing all at once, as you realize how many mistakes were made by everyone involved, and how many people s lives were changed, mostly for the worse, by this tragedy It s a long read that can be a little dry at times, but sickos like me who enjoy unsolved murder mysteries will love it.

  30. Dear God So many pages and at the end you learn nothing that hasn t been put succinctly than what you can find on the Internet about the case, and Schillinger makes no effort to even lean towards a hypotheses about who the killer was Total waste of my life If you like this sort of thing, and like is a strange term for it, then I recommend you spend time on the unsolved mystery subreddit, rather than slog through this monstrosity.

  31. As interested as I am in the true crime genre, and as fascinated as I was by the unsolved and perhaps unsolvable nature of this case I just couldn t finish the book It s exhaustive in its objectiveness, which may have been the problem several hundred pages in it s a very thick book with very small print , I finally gave up after I realized I d invested all this time in a book that didn t couldn t have an ending.
