review 1: I've never been disappointed by anything I have read by Harold Schechter and this book is no different. I was surprised that some readers felt the book was boring. It was a fascinating story. I enjoy the way Schechter gives you a thorough description of the era in which these eve...

review 1: Totally fascinating book and an easy read. I didn't know anything about the subject matter, and I thought it was worth a read for the account of the legal theatrics at the Colt trial, and the crazy twist at the end which I did not see coming (if you're someone who knows a lot ab...

review 1: Wonderful and informative book! I'm a forensics student and I've read dozens of true crime books in my life, so I thought I knew all about the most famous mass murderers and serial killers in the USA, but apparently I was very wrong! I'd heard of a few of the people described in ...

review 1: This is one I really skimmed through. It is a pretty comprehensive catalogue and is a good source for a lot of serious questions. The book does handle the topic of death in a "lively" manner, but seriously addresses many aspects of death, grieving, what to tell the children, etc....

review 1: this book probably is better read in segments and not straight through. so maybe in book form but I don't suggest to read it on the Kindle. so although it was detailed there were points where the author repeated information. suffice to say It is the whole catalog because I offica...

review 1: Lively indeed, although I had pretty much already read or knew about the info HS presents. The ebook version is rather badly laid out (pics w/the captions on the next page, what are obviously boxed insets interrupting the narratve text, etc.) and I would have preferred a physica...
