Title: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

Author: John Berendt

I loved this book. This was one of the books I read after I saw the movie but only because I didn’t know it was a book first. I love how this reads like a fictional novel when it is about real people and events. I love how Mr. Berendt makes the scenes come to life-like they are happening now.

“Elegant and wicked…. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil might be the first true-crime book that makes the reader want to book a bed and breakfast for an extended weekend at the scene of the crime.” –The New York Times Book Review
