Summary
Murder - a dark, shameful deed, the last resort of the desperate or a vile tool of the greedy. And a very strange, very British obsession. It's a subject that we have maintained a long and bloody fascination with - the more gruesome the details, the better. But where did this fixation develop? And what does it tell us about ourselves? In this book, Lucy Worsley explores this phenomenon in forensic detail
