I'm in the process of looking for a new book community (need I say more?) so hopefully booklikes is it. For now I'm just figuring out the site.

Empty Mansions: The Mysterious Life of Huguette Clark and the Spending of a Great American Fortune - Paul Clark Newell Jr., Bill Dedman

Excellent book. Well written unbiased account of the Clark family focusing mainly on the life of Huguette Clark. Although there is a lot of unknowns concerning Huguette what I really appreciated was the author stayed away from the endless speculation and surmising that many non fiction writers rely upon to fill their pages. I think his 1989 Pulitzer prize was probably well deserved. The release of this book coincided nicely with the actual court case. Highly recommended.
