Firstly, this book is not the story of Christine Jessop, of her family, or really even of her murder. This story is about the monumental failures of the police, the legal system, and the judiciary in regards to her murder. Most of what I have read is more about Guy Paul Morin than anyone else, since he is the one who was accused of her murder.Some further thoughts.

It appears that what started as more in over their heads for the police became an (at least silent) conspiracy by the end. They *needed* to be right. I think, for me, this is the one overriding thought so far. As an American, the ability of the prosecution to appeal an acquittal is new to me and I had to work through some of that before I could start reading about the second trial.

Its not that I dont or cant understand how it happens. It is a very powerful need to make sense of and find the culprit of so heinous a crime- its visceral. Today, the first responders would also get counseling to help them.Further thoughts center on the victims of this case.

Christine and Guy Paul are obvious victims - her since she is the one murdered, Guy Paul because he was falsely accused and convicted. But Ken Jessop is also a victim, both as a young child and later after Christine was murdered, he was (as were the rest of the Jessops) a victim of the police and prosecutors who wanted testimony changed and worked so hard to for a conviction.The entire Jessop family were victims, as much victims of the original crime as Christine was.

The Morins were victims too- victims of a legal system go haywire.I know how the story ends, of course. Guy Paul Morin was finally exonerated on DNA evidence.But my heart goes out to everyone in this case, and especially the Jessops and Morins both have my deepest sympathy.The book itself is meticulously and tirelessly searching for clues and facts and tells and really anything to figure it all out. Its almost as if the author were trying to solve the case himself, just with the information he could get. Ultimately, the crime scene, the memories of the families and townspeople, the court transcripts will not be enough for that.

Someone out there did this, whether they live today or have since passed on.This case and its aftermath changed the way ordinary citizens saw their neighbors and friends, the judicial/legal system, and themselves.
