Volume 32, Issue 5 (September 1987)
A Review of The Murderer and His Victim
According to the dust jacket, this book is intended “for everyone professionally involved with these criminal offenders,” and indeed it is. The dust jacket also indicates the book “answers just about any question that may arise concerning murderers and their victims:” It doesn't tell whodunit! It does, however, include a somewhat rambling section by Dr. Boyd, “Homicide in Fiction.” Dr. Macdonald trained in New Zealand and Great Britain. He has practiced psychiatry in Colorado for more than 35 years. He has interviewed more than 400 murderers, and he offers may vignettes about the murderers he interviewed and others.
