This is a very well-researched and well-illustrated collection of case studies of "crimes of passion" -- usually a man killing his wife or lover. Not all of the cases included fit the criteria, though; for example, included was the case of Chester Gillette, who killed his pregnant girlfriend. Gillette at first said her death was an accident, then that it was a crime of passion, but it turned out he'd murdered her in cold blood because he didn't want to marry her or support their child.

OMG SO DISGUSTING but really good and gives u a pretty good idea about the types of murder mysteries that went on from the 1900s and on. (not such good ideas but yea....) READ IT
Quite ok, nothing special about this book though - pity that there are no current cases. Also, quite a few famous cases are not mentioned in this book.
