Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More true tales of woe from Cleveland's crime and disaster expert. This fifth book in Bellamy's popular series delivers 26 new accounts of Cleveland-area crimes and disasters from 1900 through 1950. The title story is about a death on the Thriller roller coaster at Euclid Beach Park. Also recounted are such tales as the odd international hoax in which a Lakewood lad became The Boy with Hitler's Face and one of Cleveland's most baffling murder mysteries ever: the brutal killing of sweet 16-year-old Beverly Jarosz in her Garfield Heights bedroom. Sometimes gruesome, often surprising, Bellamy's tales are meticulously researched and delivered in a literate and entertaining style.

Synopsis:

Cleveland's crime and disaster expert is back yet again, with more true tales of woe from local history. This fifth book in John Stark Bellamy's popular series (which includes THEY DIED CRAWLING and THE KILLER IN THE ATTIC) delivers 26 new accounts of Cleveland-area crimes and disasters from 1900 through 1950, including the title story about a death on the "Thriller" roller coaster at Euclid Beach Park. Also included is a particularly odd local legend: "The Boy with Hitler's Face." Sometimes gruesome, often surprising, always entertaining.

More of Ohio's macabre past is documented in another book by John Bellamy II. I think I have all of them, and they are all fun reading, in a dark sort of way.
