I was hoping this book would live up to the premise of discussing more the two sides of the early debates of Hypnotism's role in crime. There is certainly discussion of this but it's really only about 10% of the book. The book is more just a murder story - and not a good one at that. "Murder of the Century" was vastly better.
I will say, on an audiobook level, the narrator was fantastic. Great French accent, great differentiation in tone and pace at the right times.
Levingston tells the true story of a murder at a time when psychology was just beginning to emerge into a separate discipline. There are many historical figures of interest, such as Charcot. The story holds its suspense. Very satisfying.
