This novel is a work of non-fiction. A journalist lives in Savannah for several years, observing and writing about its quirky citizens and the famous murder trial of one of its most prominent citizens. I can't help but feeling that many characters were greatly embellished as they read like comical charactiatures more than people. The author did capture something essential about the "Old South" though-- something that has faded nearly everywhere but still held strong in 1980s Savannah. Not just its pretense of honor and chivalry, but also its unexpected acceptance of depraved debauchery. Strange book. I liked some of it a lot but wasn't ultra-compelled by it. ( )

This was too many stories all jumbled together. I get that there were some fascinating characters but this needed editing down by at least half. The Williams case was interesting, but not the most interesting. Chablis deserved her own book. ( )

loved it. The city, the people the "mystery" was a minor player but it all added up to a good read ( )

I ran across a news article about 2024 being the 30th anniversary of this book and giving some detail about it. Shortly after that a copy appeared in our Little Free Library, and some friends highly recommended it as well. Of course I had heard of the hype over it some years back, but had never gotten around to reading it. So I decided it was finally time to do that. It did not meet my expectations, which admittedly, were probably a bit higher than they should have been.

The book was alright and while I didn't find it riveting, it was somewhat entertaining, or informative at least. As all sources had indicated, it was truly more of a memoir of a particular period in Savannah society and a few of the upper crust and those who were involved with them. In covering the murder case of a troubled young man and his accused murderer, a high end antiques dealer; it managed to paint a portrait for us of Savannah in the 1970's and 80's.

The writing style was adequate and straightforward, with no frills. As the author had written magazine articles for many years, this makes perfectly good sense. That style is just what we find in the book, as well.

Events, details and descriptions were laid out matter of factly, with no pretense at suspense or complex story lines.

And so the story of Jim Williams, Danny Hansford and 8 years of jury trials, with descriptions of Savannah, and some if its inhabitants woven in, unfolds for us to its denouement. ( )

Probably closer to 3.5 stars. Interesting, funny, readable, but not amazing or life-changing. Failed to make me think. ( )

Elegant and wicked.... Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil might be the first true-crime book that makes the reader want to book a bed and breakfast for an extended weekend at the scene of the crime.

He was tall, about fifty, with darkly handsome, almost sinister features: a neatly trimmed mustache, hair turning silver at the temples, and eyes so black they were like the tinted windows of a sleek limousine—he could see out, but you couldn't see in.

These, then, were the images in my mental gazetteer of Savannah: rum-drinking pirates, strong-willed women, courtly manners, eccentric behaviour, gentle words, and lovely music. That and the beauty of the name itself: Savannah.
