This volume relates in chronological order, more than 40 stories that really happened, from the beginning of the twentieth century to today. With love can come jealousy followed by revenge, violence, and death. Sometimes, the characters emotions and impulses spin out of control with horrifying results. Other times, it s a matter of ice-cold opportunism. International in scope, the selections range from the Pamela Smart and Lorena Bobbit cases in the US; the O.J. Simpson murder trial; the Sada Abe case in Japan, which inspired the film In the Realm of the Senses ; and the recent Oscar Pistorius case in South Africa, in which the Olympic athlete shot his girlfriend.
