Extremely boring. Written in a very factual, step by step way. No storytelling, no visualizations, absolutely nothing to draw you in. Took two interesting cases and made them very blah. This is something to pass on. ( )

"A Family Cursed" is the absorbing story of the wealthy Kissel family, specifically Robert and Andrew, who were both murdered. A fast, interesting read with plenty of detail. ( )

His marriage was failing, and he faced prison for real estate fraud. Was his death a murder--or suicide? This riveting true story follows the different paths the Kissel brothers took toward the same fate and became
