Murder and Mayhem: 52 Crimes That Shocked Early California 1849-1949 Paperback – March 28, 2012
Barry has a style of journalistic writing that I like. He provides the details and facts, but adds color to them to make them interesting and less dry...historians, murder-mystery lovers, and detective story fans will enjoy this book. Murders, bombings, heists, and kidnappings are all in there. Lori M for Readers Favorite
Readers of Murder & Mayhem are taken through a brief, yet thoroughly absorbing, tale of the crimes. This is a quick and appealing read...that is worth checking out if you are a history buff and a would-be forensic detective. San Francisco Book Review - May 2012
Murder & Mayhem is a great read. Jane Glenn Haas for Orange Coast Magazine, May 2012
