Every now and then one runs across a legal case whose facts are so bizarre that they could never be published as fiction—the story would be too improbable. In re Neagle was such a case, and it has all the features of a Wild West movie: blazing six-shooters, a beautiful blonde heiress, a tall, bowie-knife-toting frontiersman, a multimillionaire widower, and an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court charged with murder. Mr. Lewis gives a spirited account of this chapter in American history. The story is true. Not even the names of the characters have been changed.
