The true-crime book whose name I can never remember: “Deadly Intentions”

It’s a hell of a book, summarized in this article, but much, much more in the book (secondhand copies here).

When you read it, you realize that the writer, the prosecuting attorney who sent the mad doctor away for 5 to 15, was anticipating that he himself would be a targeted victim of revenge, so he writes the book as if to say, “Anything happens to me, this is the guy to look at.”

I kept misremembering the title, thinking it was “With Malicious Intent” or “With Vicious Intent(ions).” But those two carry moral judgment, so a nonjudgmental phrase is “Deadly Intentions”: purpose defined but not judged.
