"This book is an informative and easy-to-read account of different aspects of murder in the United States. It covers a wide range of topics, from several killings to terrorism, but concentrates mainly on the perpetrators of  homicide rather than the victims of such crime. The book provides a good introduction to the subject."

This book will be immensely helpful for my dissertation students in getting to grips with the theoretical and conceptual frameworks around this topic.
