The Billionaire Boys Club: Rich Kids, Money and Murder by Sue HortonUp date: The new movie version (2o18) featuring Kevin Spacey earned $126 nationwide on its first day showing. The original 1987 movie was, because of the sensational and well known story behind it, a pretty popular and well received film.
I just finished Ill Be Gone in the Dark: One Womans Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer and someone asked me if I could recall other true crime stories I had liked/been gripped by, and this one, written by an old friends wife, is well-written about a famous mid eighties crime/trial. I also read The Red Parts and Janes Murder by Maggie Nelson. Oh, things like The Road to Perdition, of course. I am sure there have been more, but all for of these are really well-written. Of course, a lot of fiction is loosely based on actual events, so its maybe a slippery category. For instance, is Macbeth more fiction than non-fiction, based on a series of actual crimes he committed prior to and during his short reign as King of Scotland?
Hortons book is well-researched about two despicably rich boys that knock off mummy and daddy to get a greater share of daddys fortune than they had already been spending. Was made into a tv movie, too, which I recall seeing. We love to despise the rich, such as those who buy 15K ostrich coats or those who complain about vandals unmooring their $40 mil yachts. This one is a journalists account, compared to the feminist-cultural theorist Nelsons self-reflective account.
