Read in February, 2012

I read this book in one weekend! It was a wonderful depiction of the "yellow" journalism and the brash competitiveness of newspapers of the time period. Research was very thorough and the crime is one I've not heard of beforehand. I put another book by this author on hold and looking forward to reading it! The only drawback was I wish there were more photos--but perhaps they were hard to come by...great stuff. I'd recommend it to anyone interested in the history of crime and/or journalism. Also for anyone interested in the history of NYC. It was interesting to me how rural places like Queens were in that time period.
