The Most Twisted Murders in Fiction

‘In Death’ and the Most Twisted Murders in Fiction

Murder: Be CreativeDrilled to the wall through the heartBeaten and drowned in a river by droidsStabbed through the heart with a stilettoPoisoned with a pieSuicide by hanging, induced by mind controlling virtual-reality gogglesRaped, sodomized and strangled with a Christmas garlandBled by artificial vampire fangsBludgeoned with a Maltese Falcon statue. These are just some of the deaths in J.D. Robb’s bestselling series featuring Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her husband, Roarke: “In Death.” Robb’s latest installment, “Thankless in Death,” is her 46th in the series, and by now Eve has dealt with a lot of creative carnage. Here, we pay tribute to the thrillers that have given us the ghastliest murderers and the most deranged demises that fiction has to offer, from Sherlock Holmes to Stephen King.
