Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellently written, reads like a fiction novel, December 31, 2011
This review is from: The Girls of Murder City: Fame, Lust, and the Beautiful Killers who Inspired Chicago (Hardcover)
I was very skeptical when I received this book as I am usually averse to non-fiction titles. Luckily this one is so well written that you wouldn't even know its a work of non-fiction. Perry infuses every page with interesting details about a topic that might seem pretty narrow. The book perfectly captures the period and provides great description of the "characters" around which it is centered.
The book focuses primarily on the famous murderesses Belva Gaetner and Beulah Annan and their noteworthy trials. But it doesn't stop there, it captures the period beautifully and examines the role media and celebrity played in their trials. This is a fascinating read for fans of the musical "Chicago" and those who are unfamiliar with "Chicago" (such as myself) alike.
