Murder by Candlelight by M.K.Beran

It is definitely a little bit more pretentious that it should have been, and some editing should have been done, and the prose is somewhat artsy, ornate, and flowery, but I still enjoyed reading the book, mainly because it is not about murders and true crime, but because there are so many literary passages how evil was viewed by people of words, quills, and pens.

As I said, some passages are quite far-fetched, but the 19th century true crimes are mostly illustrations of how literature viewed evil. Quite an intriguing approach
