This is one of the most fascination books I have ever read. The writing is flawless, and the story just incredible. The family in this story of 'granpatricide' has got to be the most dysfunctional families I or most people (or most psychiatrists) have ever heard of. It is almost impossible to put this book down. It is very long, but it really couldn't be any shorter, there is just too much to this story. And every word is worth it. The mother in this story, Francine is a real piece of work. From birth she was spoiled and had to have everything her way and desired the best of everything both physical and social. She longed to fit in, but this days she might be (and might have been) diagnosed with a myriad of psychological problems. But any treatment that was suggested or offered she refused. All things were Francine's way, and she could not be defective or deficient in any way. All the while, all those around her were a cast of sad, battered, broken, defective parade of family and friends. With one shining exception, Francine's daughter. Even through Francine's verbal abuse she seems to have made it through, mostly through the protection of her older brothers and grandmother. Hopefully she will grow up free of the family curse.

The true crime genre is my guilty pleasure, however I am frequently disappointed in the writing. Not this time. This book is outstanding. Whether you're familiar with the story or not, this one will floor you. The family involved is dysfunctional to a mind bending degree. It defies description.
I read this years ago when it came out in paperback. When it popped up in Kindle version I got it, reread it, and it's every bit as good as the first time. True crime may not be your thing, and if that's true for you, this book will be the exception to the rule.

I debated a 3 or 4 on this book. It's an interesting style of presentation. There is a bit of an introduction and then the author tells us what happened and who did it. And I'm sort of now wondering why I should read the book. The family involved in this murder had to be the most neurotic in the state of Utah if not on the planet. It was all about money. Their story is told in painful detail. We get it. The central character of the story is crazy as a June bug. Enough already. Finally when we get to the trials the pace picks up and is fairly interesting but it took way too long to get there. Hence a 3 and not a 4.

This book is very poorly written. Author skipped around so much that its difficult to follow . If he/she had written it in a time line fashion (as most books are) ,it would be a much better book. That said, I am rivited by the story. I'm only about 20% of the way through it, and I know every little detail of each character, but can't keep up with who is described by the author at any given time.Who edited this book anyway?

After completing the book I have the same opinion. It was a good story but stuffed throughout with so much unnecessary detail as to make it cluttered and disjointed. Hard to follow the timeline of the story. Think ill read the other one now.

This was a fascinating look at a family gone wrong. The youngest daughter, Frances, seems to care only about money and getting her way. She raises three children of her own with verbal abuse and physical deprivation, eventually leading to the murder of her father by her son.
How Frances got away with stealing from her family, forging cheques and the abuse of her children is a mystery to me although the author makes an attempt to explain it.
The book is fairly long, but never boring. I would highly recommend it to any lover of true crime.

A very good read indeed! I was continually shocked by this family's behavior, but not at all surprised by their fate. I read it primarily because I was researching Mormon profiles, but that did not really apply here. They were just weird people. The author was attuned to the twists of the feminine persuasion [gossip], as no male author could have done. Would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in human behavior.

Tommy Thompson is extremely adroit at choosing great stories. You may be asking what Tommy Thompson has to do with this story and my answer would be: everything. The author, Shana Alexander, mentioned in her foreword that this entire story began with the research of the author of "Serpentine" and "Blood and Money", Tommy Thompson. Unfortunately, Tommy died before the conclusion of this saga and obviously before concluding his book that was to be titled "Mama's Boy." Tommy's sons handed his notes over to his good friend, Shana Alexander, and she took on the task with avarice. To be fair, though Tommy planted the seed, Shana Alexander made this work her own by doing the cultivating and harvesting--hence she chose her own title of "Nutcracker."

This is a true crime novel in which a man was murdered, another was bashed in the skull, three people went to prison and another went to a psychiatric hospital. There was a lot going on and even though most of the events centered around the murder of Franklin Bradshaw, the patriarch of the Bradshaw clan and a frugal millionaire, the severest of crimes was not his killing.

Yes, murder is a serious crime and we hold it as such but murders happen all the time. Franklin was 75 years old and although he didn't deserve to be killed he had lived a full life. That may sound cruel--it's not meant to be--I'm only illustrating how his simple death would not have been made into a book.

The essence of the book lie in the family and the various characters, most notably Frances Schreuder (pronounced shroy-der), Franklin's youngest daughter. Her wrath, especially towards her helpless and vulnerable children, was limitless. Whenever you mix money into an already caustic solution of sibling discord and parental favoritism you are bound to get some type of explosive reaction.

I couldn't read this book fast enough. Every page seemed to be another tragic occurrence, another bitter feud, another broken soul, another inequity. Then, there were the hows. How was the murder done? How did the murderer get caught? How did it get to that point? For dozens of pages a picture was painted of the family as a whole though some faces were of a sharper focus than others. And it was those sharper faces that were the main players and made this saga a story. All told this was a breathtaking affair that elicited strong feelings (usually of either hatred or compassion) and that's what you want from a novel.
