In the preface of I of the Storm, Lester introduces his purpose for writing this book. He states that, although he is a self-described suicidologist and has published many things on suicide, he doesn’t know exactly why it is that people kill themselves.

The meaning and nature of suicide in a suicide bombing is strikingly different from other forms of suicide.

Aside from that, this paper will discuss about the significance why Capote himself was never named, and how this absence endangers the credibility of the narrative in lieu of the Heisenberg Principle.

Today 's society seems entranced by serial killers in the news and media. Because of the worldwide coverage on serial killers, forensic psychiatrists have taken an interest in these people and often interview them after they have been caught.
