Finished today I did think it was an interesting read but not extraordinary Not worth the raving reviews I read on to be honest Writing was okay the story not so much Except if you are in the middle of it of courseOne thing that annoyed me There were 3 people that gave tips to the whereabouts of the killer The author only praised one of them because this person had said to give his or her reward money to charity The author thought heshe was a hero Well I do not agree The other 2 also picked up the phone You do not know how they live if they were poor and maybe the one who she thought to be a hero was rich In my eyes all 3 were hero s not just the one who did not wantneed the reward Another thing I noticed the tone of the author towards Earl got meaner and meaner during the book lol Even that he took just one zip of water meant he was acting and this is just 1 exampleI do not know how many times I ve read that Jack the author s husband was definitely the victim s favorite cousinThose are the things why I prefer my true crime books not to be written by family though Life Is BeautifulSebuah Jendela Untuk Melihat Dunia you are in the middle of it of courseOne thing that annoyed me There were 3 people that gave tips to the whereabouts of the killer The author only praised one of them because this person had said to give his or her reward money to charity The author thought heshe was a hero Well I do not agree The other 2 also picked up the phone You do not know how they live if they were poor and maybe the one who she thought to be a hero was rich In my eyes all 3 were hero s not just the one who did not wantneed the reward Another thing I noticed the tone of the author towards Earl got meaner and meaner during the book lol Even that he took just one zip of water meant he was acting and this is just 1 exampleI do not know how many times I ve read that Jack the author s husband was definitely the victim s favorite cousinThose are the things why I prefer my true crime books not to be written by family though

Jack Mary Branson Ì 5 Free download Read Ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ì Jack Mary Branson review Murder in Mayberry Greed Death and Mayhem in a Small Town Throw in lies gossip greed international extradition struggles and a conflicted federal agent and the result is Murder in Mayberry Lifting the veil on a picket fenced Bible Belt town this chill. Branson Mary Kinney and Jack Branson Murder in Mayberry Greed Death and Mayhem in a Small Town 2008 Well penned account replete with local colorAlthough the details in a true crime book are known I want the potential reader of this review to BEWARE of possible SPOILERSThe perp here is Russell Winstead age about 40 height six foot one weight probably about 180 pounds He has all the makings of a classical sociopath but as yet nobody knows it because he hasn t really stepped over the line He s charming to women He has an indulgent father in Earl Winstead and an even accommodating rich aunt named Ann Branson Why he needs to be indulged is because of his gambling addiction He tried NASCAR racing He liked the rush but he didn t have the talent Then he discovered blackjack and saw himself as a professional gambler He loved playing the role of the high roller getting comp ed having a casino limo pick him up flashing Bengies all over the place impressing cocktail waitress etc Only problem was Russell Winstead was a loserSo one night the night of January 12 2003 to be exact he goes once to the well that is 86 year old Ann Branson for another loan He s already in debt to her for maybe 70000 and apparently she refuses In a rage he chases her down the basement stairs and crushes her skull with a blunt instrument and then goes on to stab her some seventy or so timesEnter Mary Kinney Branson wife of Ann Branson s other nephew Jack Branson then a US Treasure Special Agent now retired He s about the same height as Russell but there the similarities end Where Russell is reckless and uncaring about other people Jack is careful and very caring Where Russell fails and needs propping up Jack succeeds Where Russell is vain about his looks and worries about a growing bald spot Jack is modest and his hairline is not receding So in a sense this is a story about the contrasting lives of these two menMary Branson tells the story from some distance because she is not a blood relative and as she says in Madisonville Kentucky blood matters Note that as in The Andy Griffith Show and Mayberry RFD there is no actual Mayberry The Mayberry in the title is a state of mind Call it the mind and the lifestyle of a small town in AmericaWhat sets this true crime story apart from many others I have read is the fact that Mary through her husband Jack and his connections and through her being a member of the family and the community is in an enviable if that s the right word position for getting the true milieu of the story Further since she is a veteran writer of children s stories you can be sure that her prose is clear readable and without any four letter words What I found most fascinating and what kept me turning the pages were the many lifestyle details that Mary Branson gives of the people involved and the portrait she paints of the small town life and its values not to mention how she also reveals herself sometimes inadvertently I ll just mention the nearly constant eating out at fast food establishmentsHere s an example of Mary Branson at her most vivid The trial has begun and she s watching She writes Once I d walked into our family room to find our three year old grandson Taylor holding his eyelids open as he watched a cartoon on television I asked what he was doing and he said I m keeping my eyes from blinking This is my favorite part of the cartoon and I don t want to miss even one second Mary explains That s how I felt as David the prosecutor presented the prosecution s case After being information starved for so many years I was scooping up every crumb that came my way p 256Like her husband Jack Mary looks before she leaps and she doesn t make rash statements Consider the case of Ann Branson s housekeeper Judy as an example of the care that Mary has taken in weaving this storyJudy believed that one of two persons other than Russell committed the crime She insisted on that from the beginning even going so far as to make some very uestionable testimony at the trial seemingly in an effort to protect Russell Was she too like some other women in the story charmed by Russell Mary Branson does not say What she does instead is report the uestionable testimony and note that through it all Judy remained friends with Russell s father Earl who incidentally or not so incidentally was the executor of Ann Branson s estateHere s another example on page 272 Mary Branson notes that local cop Captain Randy Hargis was initially in charge of the investigation and had been a longtime friend of Russell The two had played softball together and ridden four wheelers Then she adds Hargis testified that his primary reason for inviting Ben Wolcott to join the investigation was to give the Madisonville Police Department access to the Kentucky State Police crime lab and other resources Mary Branson is not saying directly that Hargis wouldn t or couldn t be objective in handling the case or that he s lying She is merely pointing out softly the potential conflict of interestHere s some local color near the end Thirty miles away in Madisonville the verdict was announced on the radio a little before 1130 am Someone who d just heard the verdict stepped inside a local bank and called out Guilty Everyone knew immediately what he meant Customers and employees applauded a review by Dennis Littrell The Chicolini Incident Rex Nihilo

Personally knowing or at one time met 95% of the people connected with this story makes my review difficult Previously I only knew the details as they filtered long distance through my parents the occasional mention during a phone call or the newspaper clipping sent by mailI ve been meaning to buy this book since it came out and would like to thank my mother for finally gifting it to me this ChristmasBut to the work at hand once I overlooked the romanticized depiction of my old hometown the facts of the crime were well reported and from the uniue perspective of close family members
