Read full description of the books:
I don't read much true crime but this really was well done. So much history of the place and people, which are very important to the person of Dr Cavaness and his development, though he seems, hopefully. to be very much an individual. He is a person of Little Egypt but not the only type of person who lives there, thankfully.
The setting of Little Egypt, in Southern Illinois, is integral to the entire story as it sets the stage for the creation of the isolation which could foster the type of people involved, the isolated rural culture subject to all of the problems typical of such areas in the 1960s through the 1980s, and it allowed a very intelligent man, who was truthfully smarter than most, to use that intelligence in ways that weren't obvious to most of those he lived with and among.
This is a story of manipulation, of duplicity, of seeming hatred out of coldness, of apparent inhumanity at times with a disregard for other people on all levels. And it is fascinating. O'Brien has written a fascinating true history of a man and a place. That he titles his book after the place is fitting for the doctor lived in a den where he could act with apparent impunity.
I do recommend this for those interested in true crime reading or in family dynamics, sociology, or perhaps American small town history. It is not really gory (though there is one segment that can't help but make one's skin crawl). This exists more on the psychological and detective and interpersonal levels. And succeeds very well.
