Book Review: Little Demon in the City of Light by Steven Levingston
If you like stories of true crime, history and psychology, you will love this 304 page book based on a true story of a pair of criminals turned murderers in 1889. Written by the non-fiction book editor of the Washington Post, this story really moves along telling the fantastic tale of how a determined French police chief, against amazing odds brought the two to justice. A great illustration of how criminal minds work to manipulate the truth and other people. Hypnotism, prominent in France at the time, is explored as a possible factor. This is not a slow-moving history book, so if you like Anne Rule, you will love this. Enjoy!
