Oh? Well maybe you could fill us in on who these people are and what details they added? I'm still not inclined to read the book but find your comment interesting. As I said, no one else has said anything that I am aware of.

Welcome to "the org", Mumio…they can have you, but I'll have your love in the end nod

I refuse to spoon-feed you. You need to READ books before you critique them.

There should be a basic requirement:

1. Read the Investigative Reports to gain a basic understanding of the findings

2. Read the book.

I have been reading it after I put my boys to bed. It reads like a mystery novel...just an easier more enjoyable read. I actually appreciate just that fact alone because this story could reach many more people as not everyone is going to read a long, tedious police investigation but might read if presented this way. You never know what questions will arise or where that will lead. In fact I have some new questions since starting the book . The author did make a few typos or errors like I think he referred to Manuela as Prince's 1st ex wife on one page (in fact he apologized for the spelling errors on twitter i believe)but other than that it is apparent he studied the police files very closely.

Thanks Krystal-Yes, he did make a few typos and did call Susan Moonsie, Susan Moline...yikes. But overall, I think he did a good job and added additional interviews and fleshed it out.

What a cringefest. And how could anyone with any sensitivity “enjoy” this blather? I have read the files and I’ve read the snippet of this book and I will confidently say this book sucks. Sucks.

He's a hack, and an opportunist.
He's on Twitter asking which Gameboy is Kirk lmao, & agreeing with folks saying m1 moved into PP at 16...

LOL.

He's an amateur; some goofy little lollipop trying to play with the big kids.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Not necessarily.
Usually I tend to listen to my fellow wo.man
who has already read them, you know, for good advice.

But you seem to have no advice to offer except to blindly/buy/dive into serious stuff
which I think is better left to Justice anyways, and which the very thought upsets many.
Show some respect.

If you really feel a morbid Agatha Christie fascination when you look at Prince face down,
and I don't mean just the infamous pic, I'm disqualifying myself. I'm outta here.
If on the other hand you are getting documentation to get closer to the truth,
please share a little more than minor details, or pesky ones ("Breaking News: Author can't spell but apologizes on Twitter"),
please do share with us the big picture, the meaning of it all, instead of getting on your high heels.

And Mama, maybe you didn't notice but some of us
have been able to feed ourselves for quite some years now.

All is left of Prince's departure is this tragicomic non-closure:
Those who knew a doctor's number should have called her sooner,
that's all y'all.

Don't let The Undertaker feed U, Sister.
Let the dead bury the dead.
Just my 1 cent and half a mule.
Ain't got no acres, but.

For people who have actually read the book: I found Paul Pudlitzke's (former Glam Slam manager) fentanyl death a couple months later an incredible coincidence. I am disappointed detective Wagner didn't look into it more.

I so agree with you. Every time I have brought this up, I have been dismissed out of hand. This was someone Prince knew, who could get past the guardians at the door. Which leads me to the belief that the guardians knew the supplier.

I just looked at it. I am sorry that the org did not renew the death case thread. There are some orgers who have seriously reviewed the documentation and have very definite opinions on what happened and how Prince got to that point.

I strongly agree.
It proves uch a serious subject is best left to a community of many, so there can be contradiction,
and more work done than just someone left alone with his own biases and limits.
And it should be free, even if ithe time and dedication some orgers took out of their lifetime wasn't.
They deserve our gratitude, and many of the reflections ("old" thread replies) I've read should be kept as reference.
A serious matter requires serious people. This ain't no Columbo episode.
And I still don't see a justifiable reason to make money on Prince's back (pun infuckintended) in such a way.

I'm not going to give anything away here, but it is interesting that he found out who notified the press and how that name was never mentioned in the investigation files.

No page numbers which makes it difficult to reference to, but the Chapters are short enough and they can be referenced.


And he does reference the talk on Prince online communities and some of the questions that some of us posters were asking and discussing.

I hope you do start another book club. If it is by invitation only, I would like to be invited.

I would love to, but don't know if the mods would allow it. Plus the fact that people who just want to start trouble would just come on and not discuss the book.


I got half way thru last night. It is interesting and does explain things a bit more.

Uh, they DID. Where have you been?
Pudlitzke died of a completely different form of fentanyl (a powder mix of cocaine and fentanyl). It had nothing to do with the laced pills that came into Prince's possession.

Fentanyl is common that trying to connect every death to P's is ridiculous.

Does that BS book try to connect the two deaths?

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.
