The Great Crimes of Passion of the 20th Century

Sixteen of the most fascinating true stories of love, sex, and murder–crimes of passion all–that range from the shocking to the poignant and even the head-shakingly absurd.

Here is the heartrending story of Frenchwoman Yvonne Chevallier, who loved the husband she killed; the scandalous tale of the Oregon prophet Joshua the Second, who loved all women–with great gusto but unfortunately neither wisely nor well; the infamous murder of the famous and wealthy architect Stanford White at a first-run show by the incalculably wealthier Harry K. Thaw over the girl in the red velvet swing; and many more.

Blazing across the last century, these ardent and amorous stories are told here by such superior practitioners of the craft as F. Tennyson Jesse, Stewart Holbrook, Edmund Pearson, Edward D. Radin, Dorothy Kilgallen, and the New Yorker’s longtime contributor Janet Flanner, who wrote for the magazine under the name GenĂȘt.
