This book is mostly about murder. The story is written form the vantage point of the next best thing to a front row seat at the time the dastardly deed was done. That vantage point is occupied by Mr. Hopkins, attorney for the defense and, as such, the first man to hear the full story, usually before the corpse is cool, from the lips of the accused of the events and uncontrolled passions leading to that most final solution–Murder.
