Jennifer - That's my story and I'm sticking to it
"And the Sea Will Tell" is a fascinating book and certainly ranks as one of the best "true crime" stories I have ever read. Vincent Bugliosi is a fine writer, and is arguably one of the greatest criminal lawyers in the United States.
His defence of Jennifer was brilliant and I found his attention to detail in the portion of the book dealing with the trial to be thoroughly engrossing. It was fascinating to follow Bugliosi's tactics and strategy.
Now, as for Jennifer, all I can say is, she was lucky to have hired Bugliosi. There are many other lesser minds and lesser defence attorneys who would not have been able to craft a successful defence having only her vague story, with all its inconsistencies, to work with. That Buck Walker did the actual killings is without question, in my mind. However I do not believe Jennifer's story. I think she did play a part in the killings and was only spared having Buck testify against her because of his genuine love for her.
