Beautiful TPB with heavy paper.
Not what I expected. This is non-fiction, covering notorious crimes-of-passion murders in history, mostly the 1900s. Foreword and lengthy Introduction cover a longer view in history.
Interesting. Useful, too... a book I read later referred to Ruth Ellis. Because of this book, I knew the background. Other alleged criminals discussed: Yvonne Chevalier, Jean Harris, OJ Simpson, Henriette Caillaux, Harvey Crippen, Jean Liger, Alpna Patel, Lizzie Borden, and Susan Smith. Short descriptions (typically < 10 pages) of each; not in-depth reporting/analysis of any one case.
