Murder & Mayhem on Chicago's North Side (Murder & Mayhem)

Murder & Mayhem on Chicago's North Side (Murder & Mayhem) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the St. Valentine's Day Massacre to Lincoln Park's Lipstick Killer, Troy Taylor recounts many of the horrific crimes perpetrated in Chicago's North Side neighborhoods.

Synopsis:

In 1929, Chicago gangster Al Capone arranged a special St. Valentine's Day delivery for his favorite arch enemies: a massacre. Seven North Side mobsters were left dead. Yet random killings and bizarre murders were not unfamiliar in Chicago. Tales of the city's most violent and puzzling murders make this gripping work truly hair-raising: a deranged stalker kills his love object and then himself; a sausage maker uses the tools of his trade to rid himself of his wife; and a meticulous serial killer cleans his dead victims' wounds before taping them closed. Through accounts dripping with mystery, gory details and suspense, Troy Taylor brilliantly tells the twisted history of the worst of Chicago's North Side.
