And The River Runs Deep: The Cold Case Murder Mystery of Leah Marcus
By A.J. Ullman
5 out of 5 stars
The story And The River Runs Deep: The Cold Case Murder Mystery of Leah Marcus by A.J. Ullman is a book that is very powerful and moving. It is a story about the murder of Leah Marcus, the investigation into her death, and how Damon Allbright, Leah’s boyfriend was tried for the offense. The crime reporter who worked for the Cincinnati Tribune at the time of the murder ten years later decides to re-investigate. The story is very well written and does a wonderful job of laying out what the investigation found and when Damon was tried. Leah’s murder occurred at a time of racial strife and the investigation brings up the subject of race and class. Once I started this book, I just couldn’t put it down. It pulled me in and didn’t let me go until the final page. The story explores and dives into the lives of the two families affected by the tragedy. This is a story that had my emotions going up and down while reading and trying to determine just what had happened. It is a book that I would recommend reading.
