TORTURE AT THE BACK FORTY, a true crime drama, is one of the most difficult books I have ever read, not because of the writing, but because of the subject – gang rape, torture, and murder. This atrocity took place in Green Bay, Wisconsin, in 1983. Margaret Anderson was on a date, it went bad and her escort left her alone at a biker bar called the Back Forty.

This is the story of the gang rape, torture and brutal murder of Margaret Anderson in a biker bar in Green Bay.

I am not sure from all the contradictory testimony who actually dealt the final death blow to Margaret, but they all committed a despicable crime and this book conveys that.
