Ah, the chalk (or more rarely, tape) outline to indicate where the murder victim once was. The real life history of the practice is not as clear cut as most would think. The practice was originally never part of actual police procedure; after all, the standard explanation of needing to know where the body was after it is removed is laughable when taking photographs of crime scenes is standard practice.

On Sunday a body was recovered from the Thames at Fawley Court, upriver from Sonning, after reports of a man 'entering the water'. In November a woman was found dead just downstream at Marlow, and a 24-year-old man was found in the river at Henley in August. Last month Bogdan Skarbeck, 49, from Poland, who lived and worked in Reading, was found dead in the Thames, also near Henley.

Other Books by Agatha Christie. I had made a somewhat hurried departure from the hotel and was busy assuring myself that I had duly collected all my traps, when the train started. One. A fellow traveller. Up till then I had hardly noticed my companion, but I was now violently recalled to the fact of her existence. Jumping up from her seat, she let down the window and stuck her head out, withdrawing it a moment later with the brief and forcible ejaculation Hell! Now I am old-fashioned. A woman, I consider, should be womanly.

EXTRAORDINARY MURDERS

EXTRAORDINARY MURDERS. This morning, about three o'clock, the inhabitants of the Quartier St. Roch were aroused from sleep by a succession of terrific shrieks, issuing, apparently, from the fourth story of a house in the Rue Morgue, known to be in the sole occupancy of one Madame L'Espanaye, and her daughter Mademoiselle Camille L'Espanaye. After some delay, occasioned by a fruitless attempt to procure admission in the usual manner, the gateway was broken in with a crowbar, and eight or ten of the neighbors entered accompanied by two gendarmes

For would-be lawyers and armchair detectives, Murder places readers inside the inner circle of its investigation with all the key players.

A Murder

Greg Fallis was a private detective for over ten years. He was co-author of “Be Your Own Detective”. He is a criminology instructor and mystery magazine columnist. This 1999 book has 256 pages and is divided into five parts with 25 unnumbered chapters. It has no Index. This story uses a fictionalized murder case to educate and entertain the reader. Murder is involved with much of the entertainment industry (‘Introduction’). [What does that say about popular tastes or the corporate media?] There are about 20,000 murders in the US every year. [No mention of suicides?] Fallis does not mention the economic status in these crimes. [The book “Wisconsin Death Trip” told about the high rate in the 1890s, the worst economic depression in the 19th century.]

Part One describes the murder. Part Two describes the Police Investigation. The Legal Process is in Part Three. The Legal Trial is in Part Four. The fate of the guilty is described in Part Five. Most murders are done by men. The author does not take a stand on capital punishment or the legal practices that can convict the innocent or free the guilty. It reports on the existing justice system as it is, not how it should be. Murder is the unjustified killing of a person; if you can justify it, it isn’t murder (self-defense, etc.). “A Most Ordinary Murder” provides the example. A man hired a woman for nude photography. He gave her a drink with Rohypnol in it. But she woke up and began to struggle, so he grabbed her by the throat. “It was all just an accident.” What would he do next?

“Murder - A Crime of Infinite Variety” is the second chapter. What makes one murder worse than another? It’s the intent of the offender. There are definitions for “Murder in the First Degree”, “Murder in the Second Degree”, “Manslaughter”, “Negligent Homicide”, “Felony Murder”, “Non-criminal Homicide”, “Excusable Homicide”, and “Justifiable Homicide”. There are “Criminological Perspectives of Murder”. Drug-related murders are often difficult to solve (p.27). Public Mass Killings are usually done by white males from 20 to 35 years in age (p.29).

Serial murderers are often publicized. There are more movies and books about “Jack the Ripper” than about Queen Victoria (p.33). Many serial killers had expressed a desire for law enforcement work (p.35). Juveniles have always committed a significant proportion of crime (p.37). Billy the Kid was a translation of “el Chivito”; he loved dancing and romancing women best. The illegal “drug culture” results from a lack of legal jobs (p.39). There were much fewer firearm deaths before the 1968 Gun Control Act was passed. [No mention of harder economic times.]

This book is as readable as a popular mystery novel. It is entertaining as well as educational for anyone who likes to read true crime (a form of history) or the popular or the popular murder mysteries so common in public libraries. The lack of an Index limits is use as a reference. Is the example in this book a good representation of the average murder? Or was it just an available well-documented case? Reading this book is better than the usual Hollywood drama on TV.

Greg Fallis knows all about murder. He spent more than ten years as a private detective before turning to writing about murder. He's also a criminology instructor. His latest book is A Murder: From the Chalk Outline to the Execution Chamber, in which he "examines murder as a process--a series of actions, events, and operations conducing toward an end."
He starts with the observation that people are both repelled and fascinated by murder. While we generally regard the taking of someone's life as the most serious of all crimes, we've also incorporated murder into our entertainment. Fallis notes that "films, televison programs, novels, theatrical plays, computer games, even board games revolve around murder."<P The book is divided into five sections: what constitutes murder; how murders are investigated, including the arrest process; how the defense system works; the trial and jury deliberations; and the punishment, which includes a description of exactly what happens to a body when it's subjected to execution.
Fallis starts with a murder--a man rapes and kills a woman, then hides the body. He uses this to kick off the discussion of the kinds of murder, such as manslaughter and the reasons why people kill one another. The remainder of the book follows this pattern--a fictionalized case used to illustrate the common elements of all murders.
In addition to providing information on how and why murder happens, and how the murderer is apprehended and punished, Fallis reminds readers to "periodically remind yourself of the enormity of the act. To kill another person is an act of tremendous presumption."
Readers, whether repelled or fascinated by murder, will find that A Murder is an excellent reference that answers all their questions about what happens when one person kills another.
