The Strange Case of Major Call. By Bernard F. Conners. Conners makes a substantial case that a wound on Call's finger came from the teeth of the struggling Marilyn Sheppard. Conners also connects a torn leather fragment on the scene to Air Force gloves such as the ones Call wore during his heists. And the war hero murdered a policeman a few days after the Sheppard death and may have beaten an earlier robbery victim.

Good read - interesting flashback into a period of 20th century society devoid of forensic DNA testing, readily available computer interface and internet, immediate communication of information in many forms. Thoughtfully crafted and great use of English language. Read like novel in spite of being non-fiction. The famous murder inspired the TV series "The Fugitive" back in my youth. it was specially interesting to have lived throughout the time period covered in this work; to see how handicapped law enforcement was in comparison to what is available today. And yet similar tories can probably be written today.

The author of this book takes a smattering of facts and a truckload of wild guesses and weaves them together without adequate clarification of which is which. Very enjoyable account, well told, except that it is mostly fiction, and mostly highly unlikely fiction, pretending to be fact. As written, it is hard to put down, and there are few enough known facts that it cannot be easily proven that it did not happen this way, but there is enough known that it is less than a chance in a thousand that the author is even close to correct.

Read it if you like "true crime stories" and do not care whether they are true. Just do not believe it.

Tailspin is a compelling story of an aviator gone wrong but more important it provides compelling evidence which goes a long way toward solving the mystery of the infamous Marilyn Shephard murder of July 1954. As a "LEO" I was very much interested in the manhunt for the person who shot 3 police officers, but the evidence implicating Call in the Shephard case looks to be fairly overwhelming. Anyone with an interest in legal/whodunit thrillers or just an interest in the Shephard case should "DEFINITELY" get this book it is a page turner. Patrick Hogan Wynantskill, NY

I am the step daughter of James A. Call.I remember Jim as a caring and strong individual. He always treated us with the utmost respect and love. When I was a little girl I do remember my mother telling me that he loved his first wife and his son Jeff very much. In fact, I remember Jeff teaching me chess at my house during the latter part of Jim's funeral. After we got interviewed for this book, I asked my mom if any of the things that I had heard from the interviewer, (Mickey) were true about Jim. All she would tell me was that there are some things that a wife will never tell about her husband. And believe me she never did tell me! When I read this book my heart sank because I didn't want to believe that any of it was true . There are some true facts in the book, (the interviews with individuals) ,but for the most part it's mostly fiction. All I can say is that the man that I knew, wasn't at all like this book described.
A friend lent me this book years ago, I loved it, let others borrow it and now I finally remembered to buy it for myself. For years I raved about this book, so happy to finally have it in my possession. I couldn't put it down and that's how I judge if I love a book.
