About the Author
Praise For Death of a Murderer…
"As beautifully written as it is provocative. . . . By the end of this subtly disturbing story, life itself seems a lot more precious." —The New York Times Book Review“Thomson powerfully evokes the psychic and emotional scars caused by horrible crimes [and] poses questions that seem to pervade our relativistic times: If evil exists, then what defines it? How do we recognize it in others and in ourselves? How do we find love in spite of it?” —The Washington Post“Quietly devastating.” —The Seattle Times"Extremely tightly written, with not a word extraneous, [and] with passages that will take your breath away, because they're so knowing, or because they're so lyrical. Tender is the night, but creepy, too." —The New York Observer
