This was profiling in its infancy, and as a fan of NCIS, Blue Bloods, and other cop shows, I found that to be so enjoyable. Who was this guy? Why did he do it? How can they catch him before he kills again?
What I loved about this book was its imperative to become a better person. It’s the kind of book that will stay on my shelf, passages marked with dog-eared pages, ready to provide inspiration when needed.
I usually don’t love books set in this time period because the age was so hard on women. I can’t seem to reconcile the romanticism of the period with the reality, and makes me very uncomfortable when I read about it. But this book was different.
