Hi, would you please tell me what is the meaning of "The few killers who attempted to come to grips with their carnage did so from a prison cell" in the following text;

The demons that drove them ( serial killers) were restless and cruel and could never be exorcised. They could be neutralized by death or incarceration, but nothing else. The few killers who attempted to come to grips with their carnage did so from a prison cell.

Thanks

Grisham made a bad choice, He decided not to repeat "demons", so he changed it to "carnage", but it doesn't work. He meant that the few killers who actually wrestled with their demon, who attempted to reform, did it while serving a life sentence and therefore unable to do their criminal behavior.

No, what I did was search online for the sentence so I would have the context you did not supply that would allow me to answer. It helps if you provide a link.

anonymousThanks again

"Thanks, again."

You're welcome. It's why I'm here. Well, that and it's fun for me, and I learn stuff, usually by getting it wrong and having a regular jump down my throat.
