The shipping was pretty much next-day. It was on my doorstep when I returned form class. I was expecting a barely-readable book, just to get me through this semester but the book I received looked like it came straight off of a bookstore shelf. The spine is still rigid and everything. There is not a mark in it, and I am more than happy to return it in the same way. Thank you.

The subtitle and back-cover blurb for "The Will to Kill" are misleading. This volume does not "Explain[] Senseless Murder," nor does it (contrary to what the back cover says) "answer [the] age-old question" of "Why do people kill?" by "showing that power and control are at the center of the killer's motivation."

A better subtitle would be "An Introduction to the Study of Murder." Only one chapter (Chapter 2, about 25 pages) actually deals with WHY people kill, and even that chapter does not advance a particular thesis. Rather, it provides a (somewhat superficial) review of major theories.

The other chapters discuss homicide law in the United States, U.S. demographics relating to murder, investigation of murders, punishment of convicted murderers, and eight categories of murder (serial murder, mass murder, family murder, etc.). At their best, the authors do a good job of presenting the relevant statistics and illustrating their points with specific cases mostly from the past 20 years. At their worst, they venture into facile policy recommendations.

On balance, this is a good overview of the issues involved in the study of murder in the USA.

I did not want to rent this book. I guess i must have hit it by accident and I can't figure out how to cancel the order or contact anyone. Help!

I only give it a three because I can't read it well on my kindle, I have to read it on my computer and even then I still had to zoom in because the print is so small. I need this book for a class, and if I'd known how it would appear on my kindle I would have bought the actual book instead. On the kindle it doesn't fit text to screen.
Wonderful
