This was another "Staff Pick" that I randomly checked out and read, and I'm glad that I did. This Portland State University author did an amazing job of sharing a historical crime story that can be best described as a "Law & Order" TV episode.

After reading the book’s full title: “Duel with the Devil: the true story of how Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr teamed up to take on America’s first sensational murder mystery,” I was expecting a detective-type approach based on hunting for evidence, not a courtroom trial. It was still a good story—luckily there wasn’t much on the politics of the time—but I wouldn’t have chosen it if I knew what it was. Those interesting in judicial history or the political climate of a young America may enjoy this more.
