An easily solved 1836 New York bordello murder does not seem the stuff of momentous end-of-millennium history. But as readers of the hardcover can attest, Patricia Cline Cohen's jarring narrative about the bludgeoning-death of prostitute Helen Jewett may be one of the most readable books ever written about early nineteenth century America.
