WildBlue’s new true crime book, THE POLITICS OF MURDER: The Power And Ambition Behind “The Altar Boy Murder Case” by Margo Nash, just received an excellent review by Victoria Hewlett in The Somerville News Weekly. Read the full review here: https://thesomervillenewsweekly.wordpress.com/2016/11/14/the-politics-of-murder-was-the-convicted-teenager-eddie-obrien-and-in-one-of-bostons-most-infamous-murder-trials-actually-innocent/
This book is the story of Eddie O’Brien, a 15-year-old boy that was charged with the first-degree murder of his best friend’s mother. “The only problem was – he didn’t do it.” Attorney Margo Nash shows how justice was cast aside with the power and ambition of politicians.
“The Politics of Murder very much could be the first time that the story of Eddie O’Brien, from the fateful night that led to his conviction through the legal proceedings that followed, has been told in all honesty. His story swept the news in the mid-1990s, but it’s likely that the public by-and-large was seeing only half of the story.” – Victoria Hewlett for The Somerville News Weekly on November 14th, 2016
