In this hugely effective debut, Tom Carr sheds keen illumination upon a regional inventory of killers, kooks, cutthroats & the aggressively unhinged. The tales are horrific and humorous by turns — grisly, goofy, poignant dispatches expertly summated by a skilled veteran reporter who’s no stranger to the back stairs habituated by a true sleuth. Story telling at its fully imagined best. — Ben Hamper, author, “Rivethead”
Michigan’s blood-red past includes crooked sheriffs, ruthless gangsters, serial killers, mass murderers, Wild West-style bandits, and pirates. These miscreants, and more, do their dastardly deeds in Blood on the Mitten, an aptly-titled case book documenting the more infamous scenes in Michigan history. Each chapter contains a “Murder Map”—a unique guide for the stout-of-heart who would like to follow in the footsteps of the characters who doused the Mitten with blood-spatter. The true crime aficionado as well as those new to the genre will find something new and fascinating between these covers. — Tobin T. Buhk, author of True Crime: Michigan, Skeletons in the Closet: Stories from the County Morgue and other historical books “with a dark twist.”
Author Tom Carr shows his reportorial chops with crisp, concise prose and the text is enhanced by a multitude of historical photographs, including miscellaneous graphics. Carr blends interesting content with some visually gruesome graphics. This collection is one that Michigan history bibliophiles will want on their shelves. — Joseph Heywood, author of the Woods Cop mysteries, based on conservation officers in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, “The Snowily,” nonfiction and poetry.--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
