Journal Entry 1 by Jebbie74 from Oshawa, Ontario Canada on Tuesday, November 15, 2005

This book has not been rated.

From the infamous case of Lizzie Borden, who gave her mother "forty whacks" to the terrifying story of William Neal, whose rampage left three women hacked to death, here is a gruesome chronicle of history's most vicious axe murderers....

New York. 1841. John C Colt, brother of gun maker Samuel Colt, was one of the city's earliest recorded axe murderers. With ice cold indifference, he bludgeoned a man to death for money - and hid the body in a crate.

Houston. 1983. Karla Fay Tucker savagely murdered Jerry Dean with a pickaxe. When she found God and personal salvation, Christian groups and feminists protested her death sentence. But the law said Karla had to pay...with her life.

Passaic, New Jersey. 1996. Rita Gluzman masterminded the brutal slaying of her husband, a brilliant Russian scientist. When her cousin was caught disposing of the victim's chopped-up body along the waterfront, he told police the whole monstrous story.

Reserved for M :)

Hi there, That was a real surprise. Thank you so much. I think I am going to like this one, especially cause I am reading True crime again. I sometimes have periods I prefer other genres but I always come back to the true crime category.
I must also thank you for your beautiful bookplate. It is really gorgeous and interesting. loved the picture of Catharina the great and it also showed a bit of info on Toronto.
Thank you for this great surprise. Kiss: and a whipping to show you how happy I am . lol

Hi Jeb. I was checking my shelf, see which books I can release and noticed this one was set as available.

Guess that is a mistake cause I still have to read it.
Back to TBR. :)
Glad I noticed. Seems like a good read.

Hi there. Finally reading this book.
I've read half of the stories and I am now at the Karla Faye Tucker one. I don't know much about this case. The only thing I do know is she was on death row and had come a believer. lots of people wanted her not to die, against the death penalty cause she had discovered God? but the government decided against it.
Never knew what she did but now I see why she received the death penalty.
The Lizzy Borden story I knew a bit off and reading some parts about it I always thought she was guilty. The only thing why she was set free was because back in the days they did not believe a women could do this.

Those short stories are great when you are in a reading slump.

Thanks for sharing. What to read now? I want to get out of this reading slump!
