Marilyn StasioAlthough not in any conventional way a genre novel, Rupert Thomson's Death of a Murderer says a great deal about the impact of evil on people who consider themselves civilized. As beautifully written as it is provocative, this psychological study places a decent man in close proximity to a malevolent force—and settles back to watch. In terms of action, nothing much happens; but by the end of this subtly disturbing story, life itself seems a lot more precious.
