Both the comic and the tragic side of men and women caught up in murder and criminal justice are revealed. There is an intimacy between author and subject in the book, resulting from 2yrs painstaking research through many forgotten public records. This familiarity enables the reader to feel present at the scenes of the crimes, then to follow the murderer through the prison doors into the courts of justice, and finally up the steps to the gallows.
