4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not A Very "Nyce" Husband 2 juillet 2006
Par Kim Cantrell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
This book offers a very indepth view of the case of Johnathan Nyce who was convicted of passion provocation murder in the death of his wife, Michelle, a Filipino native.

The author does not sugar coat the life of the victim (as is often the case in true crime books) as he exposes the truth about how she came to marry Nyce in a mail-order bride type meeting, her affair with deJesus, and her vainess by seeking eternal youth. On the other hand, almost ironically, you read the good aspects of Dr. Nyce with his cures for asthma and other medical discoveries that, for a short while, made him a millionaire...a blessing that would soon to a curse, at least according to Nyce.

Unfortunately, I found the latter part of the book seems to focus on the defense attorney Robin Lord, who the author proclaims as one of the best attorneys in that area; specifically, touting her representation of Jesse Timmendequas, whose conviction led to the passing of Megan's Law. While focusing on Lord, the reader is introduced to her ridiculous courtroom theatrics and temper tantrums and, unfortunately, they seem to take up a great portion of the second half of the book.

Lastly, I must disagree with a previous reviewer who proclaimed this to a be complex case. It's not really a case of "Who done it?" as Nyce, an alleged medical genius, didn't even have enough sense to complete clean up all the blood from his garage; neither did he take the time to put the car seat back into a position, after driving atop his 6' 4" frame atop his deceased wife's 5' 2" body, that would have made it appear more likely that she was driving. Duh! I guess medical geniuses don't have much time to watch Law & Order or CSI?!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Great Read 16 juin 2006
Par The Design Critic - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I am an avid reader of True Crime and eagerly awaited John Glatt's new book, having read about the Jonathan Nyce case in the New York Times. It is one of the most complex and baffling crime stories ever and I want to congratulate Glatt on a job well done. I was most impressed by his investigative skills and the high quality of his writing.

The book really comes to life during Glatt's coverage of the trial and as a reader he transported me into the courtroom.

I would recommend "Never Leave Me" to all fans of True Crime and it is right there at the top of the genre.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A well-written objective view of the case 17 septembre 2006
Par New Jersey Mom - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Unlike a few other reviewers I found this to be a very well written and balanced account of an interesting case. I, too, live in the area and I had no problems following the action at all, nor did I find, as a previous reviewer stated, that the author confused events and places.

At the time of the case I had a lot of sympathy for Dr. Nyce, although I never for a minute bought his story that he "accidentally" pulled his wife a little too hard out of her car as she drove back from her rendezvous with her lover and her head sort of accidentally got smashed over and over again on the concrete floor. However, after reading the story I am much less sympathetic. If he had told the truth and shown remorse, then the short sentence would have been appropriate. As it is, he is sticking to his story that his 100 pound wife upon arriving home in her car "tried to kill him" by lunging at him (for no imaginable reason) with an (unidentified) sharp object and he pulled her out of the car to save himself thereby "accidentally" killing her. He then staged an elaborate cover-up so that he "wouldn't have to tell my children that their mother tried to kill me." He has told numerous lies throughout his life that were uncovered in the trial. And he is sitting in jail continuing to tell this story and to convince his children exactly what he said he DIDN'T supposedly want to tell them, namely that their mother (whose head he pounded into a pulp) "tried to kill him." And he will be out of jail in just a few years.

I only hope his children have an opportunity someday to read this book.

By the way, one unanswered question that I do fault the author for never raising is why the Nyce's were married in a civil ceremony. He repeatedly makes a big point about what big Catholics Jonathan Nyce's parents were, yet their son marries a poor Fillipino (presumably Catholic) woman that he's only known for a few days in a civil ceremony. Why would her parents permit this? It can only be because they knew that it would take a year or more to qualify for a Catholic ceremony and their daughter's big American mail-order catch might well disappear in that time. As far as I can tell in the book, the children were never baptized or raised in the church. Again -- why did neither set of "devout" Catholic grandparents say anything? I can only assume that neither the parents nor in-laws of a man who appeared to be raking in millions were about to criticize him in any way. His parents are still sticking by him as he is "persecuted" by the police.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not the best true crime but not the worst either 31 décembre 2009
Par MoodyBlue - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
Jonathan Nyce was no ladykiller, at least not yet. When the plain Mr. Nyce set out to get married he did it the mail order way. His wife came from poverty and was more then happy to come to America where she lived in a big house, spent money and found herself a boyfriend. This was the first time I have read a true crime book and actually felt sorry for the killer. I don't condone what Mr. Nyce did but I couldn't help but feel some pity for him. The book is not a page turner but it is an easy read. So if you are in between finding that one really good book and want something to read in the meantime, then this book is for you.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Get an editor, please!!! 21 août 2008
Par Fast reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
NEVER LEAVE ME did, in fact, make a boring airplane trip pass more quickly but that is ALL the praise I can give. The writing is about the worst I have ever read. Clearly the writer has a poor editor, is his own editor (and doesn't have a command of English grammar) or does not even have an editor. The text is replete with glaring errors, lame descriptions, boring repetition and confused storytelling. I could go on and on. As for the story, it was mostly forgettable for me because the writing was so weak and awkward. As a genre, true crime books are not usually penned by great writers, in my opinion. But this book was just so bad.
