Ken Corbett recounts the 2008/2011 trial of Brandon McInerney for shooting his 15-year-old classmate Larry King during their middle-school English class in 2008. He analyses the shooter, Brandon, chronicling the events of the courtroom as they reveal information that Brandon was exhibiting white supremacist ideals that led him to shoot Larry King
As a person who barely knew anything about the murder of Larry King- the first I had heard of it was when Ellen had talked about them on her show and I wasn’t even aware of its outcome in 2011. I’ve never read a book like this, as you can tell by my reviews, non-fiction isn’t my forte. But this was a fascinating, page-turning read as we follow Corbett’s account of the murder trial as he looks at both the prosecution and defence argument and attempts to help us see what really happened and why. I don’t know what else to say but how engaging this was to read.
