True Crime

Original newspaper reports of Wyatt Earp, Belle Gunness, Billy the Kid, Dr. H.H. Holmes, and others compiled by the New York Times–bestselling author. Former detective and bestselling author Mike Rothmiller has brought together classic works of journalism that will take the reader back to when these horrific tales mesmerized a nation. Some may find these articles and their descriptions of people and crimes shocking by today’s standards, but they are representative of the most colorful true crime stories of the day. True Crime Chronicles, Volume One includes stories about Belle Gunness, who had a penchant for killing men and feeding them to her hogs, Dr. Holmes and his “murder castle,” The Bloody Benders, and Amelia Dyer, the “baby farmer,” the darker side of Wyatt Earp, and the forerunners of the American Mafia, “The Black Hand.” Imagine yourself accompanying these reporters visiting the crime scenes, interviewing witnesses, and penning the stories of murder, lynchings, evil, and swift frontier justice.
