Description
On a 6,000-mile train trip from New York to the West Coast and back through the South, British crime historian Jonathan Goodman visits sites where notorious American murders occurred, in this unexpected fusion of two literary genres: the true crime essay and the witty travelogue favored by Charles Dickens and Mark Twain. Recounting such killings as the Kingsbury Run torso murders in Cleveland, the murder by "thrill-killers" Leopold and Loeb, the Kent State shootings, the St. Valentine's Day Massacre in Chicago, the Emmanuel Baptist Church murders in San Francisco, the killing of New Orleans madam Kate Townsend, and even the Lincoln assassination, Goodman sets them in historical and physical context and considers how their locations have changed in the years since.
