Review Text

  • By Earnest Sludge on February 2, 2016

    Mannix wrote a number of similarly themed books back in the late '50s and early '60s, all obviously appealing to kinky S&M tastes. I bought this because I am disgusted with humanity and not because I'm titillated by this kind of material. As such I found it relaxing to read for the first two thirds but then it really began to cloy and the final third was mostly tedious. And I have to say that I found the material about the torturing, mutilating and killing of women to be particularly unpleasant. It's hard to believe how prevalent that was. The final chapter is ten pages of ridiculous blather about the effectiveness of various punishments as a deterrent to crime and which was obviously slapped on at the end to try to lift the tone of the book up from it's obvious titillating gutter-focus.This is a short book and the writing is smooth making it a fairly quick and easy read.
