"Murder By Inspiration"

Post by Karen on Mon 28 Mar 2011 - 23:50

Close study of violent, disturbing crimes can be hazardous to a weak individual, as witnessed in the following book:


Horror upon horror! Mental horrors....For it wasn't so much that Carroll Lindsey murdered his mother. We've met that before in murder tales. Also, Carroll's mother was an odius old gin-drunkard. It wasn't, either, that he subsequently poisoned his wife. We've met that, too. And his wife was an exasperating idiot. What was inexpressibly dreadful was the condition of Carroll's mind, or of his "subconscious." He was too weak, too neurotic, to allow himself to become a constant student of criminology. He dreamt fearfully of Jack the Ripper, of Crippen, of the Lizzie Borden murders in America. He re-enacted them. They "inspired" him, till he cut his own throat. This is "Murder by Inspiration," by Edward H. Bierstadt (Chapman and Hall, 7s. 6d.). An extraordinarily clever study of incipient insanity. Not to be read at night. For adults only. We recommend - and warn.
