This rambling account of the first recorded murder trial in the U.S. tells how Weeks was accused of killing his fiancee, represented by illustrious lawyers and acquitted in 1800. ``Although the book offers an interesting view of the way criminal trials were conducted at the time . . . only the most rabid true-crime buffs are apt to be intrigued by the case,'' PW said.
