Who Killed Christopher Goodman?

Written by Allan Wolf

Based on a True Crime

Rating: 4.5/5


“Everybody likes his Goodman. Sure, he’s kind of weird. He wears crazy bell-bottoms

and he really likes the word ennui and he shakes your hand when he meets you,

but he’s the kind of guy who is always up for a good time and is happy

to lend a hand. Everybody likes Chris Goodman, which is why it’s so shocking

when he is murdered.

Here, in a stunning multi-voiced narrative that includes the perspective of the killer

and is inspired by a true and shocking crime from the author’s own past,

Allan Wolf endeavors to answer the first question that comes to mind

In moments of unthinkable tragedy: How could a thing like this happen?”

– provided abstract


Who Killed Christopher Goodman is one of those rare books that makes you step back and rethink your life once you finish it. As an avid reader, I have read very few books that have moved me to tears like this one has. In fact, I hesitated to write a review for this one because I wanted to keep this little gem all to myself. I read it in the span of about a week, and I couldn’t bare to put it down for even a minute. When I finish a book, I always have an exited summary, an explanation of characters and their wants and fears and dynamics, but this time I don’t. I could very well ramble on, but no words I could ever write would do this book justice. You’re just going to have to pick it up and read it yourself.
