Eric Ethier does a decent job with his brief but concise account. He fits in a lot of information in 15 pages. The writing style is direct, coherent, and easy to read. Ethier moves us from one time-line into another quite quickly. At times events appear to run into each other. But, trying to get in as much information as the author did, this probably could not be avoided. But for us Borden scholars, it is easy enough to sort out, and for new readers of the case, does not take away from the account. All-in-all, well written.
