ding Czinkota. There they searched for petrol, whereupon the old woman Kalman recalled the fact that poor Kiss who had died possessed quite a stock of petrol. This quickly reached the ears of the commissioner, who went at once to the dead man's house, broke down the iron bars, and found the big drums of spirit. From their appearance both the commissioner and a constable suspected them to be full of smuggled brandy. Indeed, the constable obtained a tin mug from the kitchen in order to sample the spirit when they bored a hole. They did so -- and found it to be crude alcohol.

Further investigation, however, led to a most ghastly discovery. On cutting open the top of the big drum a quantity of male clothing was seen. This was removed, and beneath was the nude body of a woman bound with cord and so well preserved in the spirit that her features were easily recognisable. Indeed, around her neck was a thin red line, showing plainly the manner in which she had been murdered namely, by strangulation with a cord

The story takes place in Hungary around a century ago. It's a typical Victorian "horror" story in that it is told from nobody's point of view--the author is just giving a report. It has no tension or suspense, and is just the story of a mass-murderer and his methods.

The writing is clear and flows well.

In 1912, a Hungarian by the name of Bela Kiss moves to England with a young and beautiful and unfaithful wife.

How he resolves his wife's infidelity and what it makes of him is the thrust and purpose of this story that reads more like a Time or Newsweek report than a fictional tale.
