A century of Boston’s thrill killers, psychos, and fiends—notorious in their day, now nearly forgotten—from the Antebellum era through the 1970s. The Boston Strangler may be the most infamous serial killer in Massachusetts history, but his crimes pale in comparison with the carnage of those profiled in this chilling compendium. Covering a century the city’s heinous past, journalist Christopher Daley reveals nine of the most sensational cases that once made headlines across the country: Kenneth Harrison, aka “The Giggler” whose random victims ranged from children to men to an elderly woman he tossed over the Broadway Bridge, just for fun; upstanding Albert Tirrell, who claimed he was sleepwalking when he slit the throat of his mistress, prostitute Maria Bickford, and set her on fire; Jesse Pomeroy, a natural-born sadist and, at fourteen, the youngest convicted serial killer in the annals of American crime. Here too are the shocking tales of the Bussey Woods murders, the Barrel Butcher, the Boston Skull Cracker, and more. Featuring rare photographs, as well as maps to extant crime scenes, Murder & Mayhem in Boston is a must for true crime aficionados.
