This book provides a fascinating exploration of murder, providing an insight into what leads people to kill and what effect this has on society as a whole.

Human psychological and physical well-being is damaged and destroyed when people are deliberately killed by other people. There are millions of primary and secondary victims of murder throughout the world, and human society as a whole is a tertiary victim of murder. Despite this, people are often fascinated and engrossed by stories of homicide and killers.

This book is organized into five chapters that each answer a specific question on murder:
* What is Murder?
* Who Commits Murder?
*Whyy Commit Murder?
* Why is Murder Devastating?
* Why is Murder Fascinating?
