The provocative early-nineteenth-century essayist casts a blackly comic eye over the aesthetics of murder through the ages.

"People begin to see that something more goes to the composition of a fine murder than two blockheads to kill and be killed - a knife - a purse - and a dark lane..."

This book didn't really grab me. I guess its not my kind of humour. Mostly it seemed boring, although I did find it interesting to look up the actual murders that are referred to. I think its style is a difficult one for modern readers.
