?The Murder? by John Steinback reveals events that take place in an untraditional marriage between two very different people. Jim Moore marries Jelka Sepic, mostly because of her beauty. Jelka, a Jugo-Slav girl, has lived a different life compared to Jim. Jelka tries to please Jim by working hard around the house, but later in their marriage Jim catches her in bed with her cousin. Jim gets very angry and shoots Jelka?s cousin. Jim beats Jelka for her actions, but he doesn?t get into any trouble by the law for the murder.
