Quick, informative read about a guy I'm not sure I really understood before. This book had exactly much information as I wanted, and never crossed over into speculative psychoanalysis, wild conspiracy theory or even (very justified) liberal rage. Geary is so good at viewing his subjects with detachment, but I do agree that his style isn't a natural fit. His staid, woodcutish style is so perfect his in Victorian Murder series, I think I'd prefer he stick to what he does best.
