Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
A MISCELLANY OF MURDER groups its magical (mayhem) mystery tour into chapters covering the seven deadly sins: lust; gluttony, greed; sloth; wrath; envy; and pride. After defining each term and how its role in mayhem, the authors present brief blurbs on true-life murders, famous murderers, unsolved murders, trials, etc. related to that sin along with summaries, first lines and quotes from novels, TV and movies and so on.
While the book is rather loosely organized, it does contain a lot of material sure to interest murder and trivia fans... plus, with a price tag of $14.95, it's easy on the pocketbook. Recommended.
