Attorney Margo Nash’s new true crime book, THE POLITICS OF MURDER: The Power And Ambition Behind “The Altar Boy Murder Case”, was recently reviewed by Robert V. Ward Jr. in the Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly. Ward gave the book an excellent review and even said that Nash has convinced him that “Janet Downing’s murder investigation ought to be reopened, and O’Brien should have a new trial.”
THE POLITICS OF MURDER offers insight into one of Boston’s most controversial murder cases. Was fifteen-year-old Eddie O’Brien wrongfully convicted? Order your copy of the book and decided for yourself!
“Nash does a terrific job of retelling what is a complicated, compelling story in “The Politics of Murder.” The book is an excellent read for those who gravitate to crime stories, as well as for those who care about the pursuit of justice.
Janet Downing and her loved ones deserved a comprehensive and thorough investigation of her death by police and the DA. Under both the federal and state constitutions, O’Brien was entitled to a fair trial. After reading ‘The Politics of Murder,’ you come away thinking that, at the very least, government officials failed everyone involved in this tragedy.” – Robert V. Ward Jr. for Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly on January 19th, 2017
