************* I agree with that. It alleviates the need for a convincing motive. And in a culture that doesn't believe in the accountability of crazies, it also deprives the reader of a real criminal.

Of course, even the best stooped to it. Hammett's Dain Curse, Chandler's The Big Sleep and Long Goodbye.
 Hell, Shakespeare for that matter, but at least he showed the Macbeths walking down that path.
