Review Text

A haunting book - a book that makes one see the inadequacies of a system that creates potential murderers out of unbelievably colorless material, that hunts men - and women - with a sadistic excitement that reveals the seamy side of decent people. It is the story of an ineffectual, inadequate little man, driven by a hypochondriac nagger of a wife, by poverty and fear and loneliness to a murder which had no roots in his character. And of the man hunt that eventually carried him to the gallows. It is a book that should sell to a double market - those who are interested in the psychology of murder (i.e., the Francis Iles market), and those who are awake to the pitfalls of our social system.
