An act of infinite cruelty

I like this:

People In Medieval Art Who’re Getting Murdered But Just Don’t Give a Damn

Do you sometimes feel this is how a victim has portrayed?

Sometimes it feels as if the victim has been inserted into a mystery as a prop, to make the story happen for other people. Especially in the Golden Age detective fiction.

Possibly in today’s cosies?

I think it’s important to see a murder victim as fully rounded humans who were once alive.

“Murder is an act of infinite cruelty.” Raymond Chandler 

For that reason I try to allow my readers to meet the victim at least once before they are found dead.
