Lizzie Borden?  The Boston Strangler?  Sid Vicious & Nancy Spungen?  A glom of the table of contents reveals just how many actual murders are in the popular consciousness, and Bill James (yes - he of the Baseball Abstract) has been contemplating causes, solutions and meanings for years.  Fans of true crime books (or regular mysteries for that matter) will find these articles enlightening, provocative and as grotesquely fascinating as their subjects.
