WELCOME TO THE LATEST INSTALLMENT in the New York Times bestselling series of stories about America’s most notorious criminals.
With this release, it’s all about Illinois. Any state that contains a large city will yield many crime stories. Chicago has certainly had its share. With the impact of gangsters, Prohibition, and a few creative serial killers, this city has it all. But murder happens in smaller towns, too, because greed, depravity, and jealousy exist everywhere.
Acclaimed author Katherine Ramsland starts this volume with some historic crimes before moving on to the more infamous tales — including the original Devil in the White City, Dr. H. H. Holmes.
“Katherine Ramsland has made many valuable contributions to the fields of forensic psychology, crime analysis and criminal justice as exemplified in her books The Human Predator and The Mind of a Murderer among others. It is rare to find someone with the breadth and depth of knowledge that Dr. Ramsland commands, even more so for such an individual to also be a gifted teacher and a wise and compassionate human being."
