"David Adams's interviews with 31 men who killed intimate female partners break new ground in the study of domestic violence and homicide. . . . The killings emerge as neither random, nor spontaneous. Rather, these tragedies are steeped in a complex melange of biography, social forces, and the immediacies and practicalities of human violence. A compelling read." --Neil Websdale, author of Understanding Domestic Homicide "From this work we can improve our threat assessment and offer better information for victims." --Deborah D. Tucker, Executive Director, National Center on Domestic and Sexual Violence
