    Criminologists, especially those interested in psychological profiling, would learn much from studying this case, than from other, more publicized murders, including the sam sheppard case.

    It laid out the facts of these murders, described the cleveland area in the time period and gave information about the police that tried to solve these crimes.

    Early on in this masterpiece of urban history and crime journalism, james badal compares cleveland's butcher of kingsbury run's four-year (at least) career with that of jack the ripper, and concludes that the same two ingredients guarantee continued fascination with both cases: atrocious crimes and a perp who is never identified.

    This book would read like fiction if we didn't have badal's meticulous notes to back it all up.

    What's more, there is a vivid sense of what it was like to have this slaughter going on in the great depression, in some of cleveland's poorest and most wretched shanty-towns.

    It's horrible and it's convincing.

    The book has included several crime scene photographs that aren't for the faint-hearted readers.
