52/52: The Killer of Little Shepherds, by Douglas Starr

Categorized in: ,

True crime focused on serial killings in rural 1890s France. It follows the template of pairing the crimes with scientific/historical developments, in this case around forensics and mental health. The narrative threads didn’t quite unite; the killer is less interesting, the key thinker not always present in the plot. Interesting, but unsatisfying.
