    This is a condensation of hours upon hours of interviews Busqued did with Ricardo Melogno, who murdered four taxi drivers in Buenos Aires in 1982 Much of it is Melogno s autobiography he spent most of his childhood and adolescence in a dissociative state, almost entirely divorced from reality, and it was in this dissociative state that he murdered the taxi drivers, so that when Busqued asks him to describe the murders, he can t And he has absolutely no idea why he did it From where he is at This is a condensation of hours upon hours of interviews Busqued did with Ricardo Melogno, who murdered four taxi drivers in Buenos Aires in 1982 Much of it is Melogno s autobiography he spent most of his childhood and adolescence in a dissociative state, almost entirely divorced from reality, and it was in this dissociative state that he murdered the taxi drivers, so that when Busqued asks him to describe the murders, he can t And he has absolutely no idea why he did it From where he is at the time of the interviews, he can only partially recall his life before he was incarcerated His incarceration was first in a mental hospital, where he was cavalierly and excessively massively excessively drugged, and between that and the need for self preservation, Melogno s dissociative state seems to have ended He became present in his own horrible life, and it s hard to say how much continuity there is between Melogno before and Melogno after without any sense of his motivation, it s also hard to say whether he would commit murder again I would guess that Melogno himself doesn t know.Busqued also uses newspaper clippings, extracts from Melogno s official record, interviews with the man who arrested Melogno and with a psychiatrist who treated him for 7 years and who rejects all the varied and contradictory diagnoses he s been given, to offer the most rounded picture he can I was not transfixed by this book, but it kept me interested and engaged and engendered a certain amount of empathy for its subject, who did four horrible things, but who has been treated horribly for 34 years in the Argentine prison system, and now, having served his sentence, is not being released because he s been legally defined as dangerous which, on the one hand, he might well be, but, on the other, is manifestly unjust The book raises ethical questions about the treatment of monsters Melogno unquestionably WAS a monster, murdering four men for absolutely no reason that anyone, including Melogno himself, can find Is he a monster now If he is or if he isn t, should that make a difference in how he s treated What is our ethical obligation to those like Melogno

    My true crime loving self enjoyed this book quite a bit It was to the point and gave the reader a full glimpse into the life of Melogno and what drove him to these actions The book was arranged in a digestible way, which made it a little easier to read about the horrible things that he did.

    He didn t seem crazy He wasn t talking nonsense, he wasn t raving This may have confused the forensic examiner He insisted that Melogno wasn t crazy, that he could be charged because he was responsible for his actions and was making things up He categorically stated that Melogno was not crazy in fact it was quite the opposite Because this was just killing for the sake of killing There was no reason for it People always kill for a reason, and then later they lie to avoid taking respo He didn t seem crazy He wasn t talking nonsense, he wasn t raving This may have confused the forensic examiner He insisted that Melogno wasn t crazy, that he could be charged because he was responsible for his actions and was making things up He categorically stated that Melogno was not crazy in fact it was quite the opposite Because this was just killing for the sake of killing There was no reason for it People always kill for a reason, and then later they lie to avoid taking responsibility Here there was no motive It was killing for the sake of killing, plain and simple p17 18 This was a relatively quick yet also deep and engaging read it really makes you question the default societal academic assumptions about the psychology, motivations, and rehabilitation of criminals I was especially interested and distressed by the way the novel highlighted how little is really known about identification of the true reasons behind certain actions, assessing a given individual s current and future risk level, and about how to adequately prepare somebody for return to general society I was particularly struck by the honest appraisal of how poorly this man s actions were understood, and impressed that despite this mystery, the author interviewer so thoroughly humanized the killer while also painting a well rounded and empathetic portrait of his entire life before, during, and after the murders I hope the author interviews and writes aboutpeople this novel was wonderfully unique and excellent on so many levels Thank you to Goodreads, Carlos Busqued, and Catapult publisher for sending me an advance review copy, and translator Samuel Rutter for bringing this novel to the English speaking world

    ARC from PublisherI couldn t put this book down I am so excited for it to be published in June so I can share it with everyone I know Busqued had the opportunity not many people do in full access to a known and convicted killer He somehow humanizes Ricardo Melogno, who murdered four taxi drivers in Buenos Aries, Argentina in just a week in September 1982, while still making it clear that he is a criminal Melogno fielded many diagnoses in his over thirty years in multiple prisons and hospital ARC from PublisherI couldn t put this book down I am so excited for it to be published in June so I can share it with everyone I know Busqued had the opportunity not many people do in full access to a known and convicted killer He somehow humanizes Ricardo Melogno, who murdered four taxi drivers in Buenos Aries, Argentina in just a week in September 1982, while still making it clear that he is a criminal Melogno fielded many diagnoses in his over thirty years in multiple prisons and hospitals, but most of them seem to not be quite accurate Not only does this book share in Melogno s own words what he did and how he got to where he is, but it also delves deep into why the prison system might not be the right place for people like him Great for those interested in true crime, prison reform, or psychology

    It was an interesting book about one man s struggles inside the Argentinian prison mental health system, the path that he took to get there, and his struggle to get out now that his sentence is up I found it intriguing how numerous and varying his mental health diagnoses were and how that is contributing to his delayed release.

    Ricardo Melogno was a young Argentine man just back from the service, when, within the first few months, kills four innocent cab drivers In this book, the author sets down the results of countless hours of interviews with Melogno to try to discover the character of a man who would do such heinous acts Most fascinating is why Melogno felt he was magnetized after killing one of the cabbies.
