William Grimes…heady tale of sin, sex, jealousy and revenge in sepia-toned Manhattan…Mr. Schechter, a professor of American literature and culture at Queens College and the author of several true-crime books, does little with his material other than keep events moving along, which is enough. The book is like a fin-de-siecle version of Court TV, a riveting sequence of appalling events, weird testimony, courtroom theatrics and bungled justice.
