Death of a Murderer (Knopf)
A factual series of murders provides the background for this novel: the Moor Murders that haunted the British imagination in the 1960's. The book traces a day in the life of a policeman who has been assigned to sit in the morgue, guarding the Moor Murderer's body. The policeman spends twelve hours reliving those murders, talking with a ghost and regretting his life. We spend a mere half hour on the nature of evil.

Read an excerpt from Death of a Murderer.
