I read this book many years ago and it made quite an impression on me as to the deficiencies and weaknesses in our justice system and the need for a strong presence of diligent media to expose those weaknesses, as occurred in Phoenix. I often wonder though, with so much of the media now exemplified by easy tabliod stories, which make for an easier sale advertisements, whether there are role models such as the stellar journalist Don Bolles, and his collegues, still left in the business.

A fascinating book about the inner workings of Arizona politics and how newspaper reporters from many papers evaluated it after the Bolles murder. An update at this point in time would bea most interesting supplement. Has anything changed as a result of their expose? Inquiring minds want to know!!!
A shame it's not in print...

This book should be required reading for anyone in Arizona, and anyone interested in investigative reporting. The Don Bolles murder, and its connection to the Arizona Republic, the Phoenix Forty, and crimelord Kemper Marley is one of the most significant events in the state's history.
