Jealousy, revenge and lust are among the oldest motives for murder. When passions run high, spurned lovers can act without a thought for the consequence. All it takes is a kitchen knife, a heavy object from the mantelpiece or a gun from the bedside cabinet..."Crimes of Passion" chronicles over 150 emotionally charged cases in which the heart ruled the head, invariably with fatal consequence. Some are spur-of-the-moment rages from betrayed partners that have elicited sympathy from judge and jury; others are more carefully planned acts of revenge and spite that have shown and received no mercy. "Crimes of Passion" covers cases form all over the world including Thompson and Bywaters, Snyder and Gray, Ruth Ellis, Howard Jacobson, Lorena Bobbitt, Susan Smith, Jane Andrews, Bertrand Cantat and Scott Peterson. The result is a chilling and compelling insight into the tortured minds of some of crime's most infamous characters.
