writing murder...

Have you heard about the Polish author that was jailed for killing his ex-wife's lover? Yep. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison. Want to know how they found out about him killing this guy? He wrote about the murder in one of his books.

read the article at The Guardian...

Proves the proverb then 'truth being stranger than fiction'.

I thought it was kind of funny. Sad that he killed the poor man but so stupid and conceited he didn't think they would figure it out

I have always been intrigued as to the ways people murder those closest to them. A paradox that shows the line between love & hate can be thin or perhaps that the line between sanity and insanity can be a fine/fragile one too.

Yeah, I, too, had heard about it....seems like someone who's hubris was too high....or just wanted to get caught.

Leroy, I agree about the fine line. I guess any strong emotion can be dangerous in a way.

Nouveau, I think he must have wanted to get caught... or maybe your right and he thought he was above all of it. Donno. :)

Reality is far worse than fiction...it is funny in a way

By the way I like your list of "Reading next" some cool books there...seeing red and devil's right hand, the covers spark interest :)

Do tell about them when you read them:)

I will! :) That's one of the best parts if sharing what I've just finished reading :) I really like the art for Seeing Redd, very cool.
