I really enjoyed this. Well writen, gives a good feel for the age of the day.
Short, surprisingly readable and engaging accounts of famous Scottish murders. The more true crime I read, the more I stand in awe at the small reasons for which people kill one another: petty arguments, the keeping of unimportant-sounding secrets, staggeringly small amounts of cash, etc. Also, given the spotty development of forensic science, I'm astounded that anybody was ever apprehended for a crime before the mid-Twentieth Century.
