Overview

Crimes of Passion: The Thin Line Between Love and Hate by Colin Wilson, Damon Wilson

All it takes is a kitchen knife, a heavy object from the mantel, or a gun from the bedside cabinet. Jealousy, revenge, and lust are the oldest motives for murder. When passions run high, spurned lovers can act without thought. Crimes of Passion chronicles over 80 cases in which the heart ruled the head with fatal consequences. Some are spur-of-the-moment rages from betrayed partners that have elicited sympathy from judge and jury; others are planned acts of revenge that have shown and received no mercy; and some remain unsolved.
