Kevin Cook, the author wrote a description of a heinous crime....he revealed the 1960's around the
time of the worlds fair....with in depth description....he makes you feel the pulse of the 1960's.....He also describes the Victim with sensitivity....surprises the readers with details never revealed....well written book....because of her
horrific murder ....911 was implemented....
Kitty Genovese was a woman that had everything going
against her for survival....but she fought for every inch of her life....the tragic failure of human behavior sealed her fate.... "THE BYSTANDER EFFECT"...
