Never the Sinner (John Logan)

Never the SinnerNever the Sinner by John Logan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Loeb and Leopold have always been the stuff of drama – here is the epitome of reality being stranger than fiction. And John Logan has captured this drama wonderfully. The penultimate scene – wherein the teenage criminal masterminds finally reveal their insecurities – is as heartbreaking as it is redeeming. For it is not just Loeb and Loepold that is on trial; it is justice itself. If we can learn to see the humanity even in psychopaths, then perhaps there is redemption for all of us in being truly able to hate the sin but never the sinner.

P.S. I really want to learn to write a courtroom drama.
