Starved Rock Murders--Steve Stout

Genre: Nonfiction; Crime Thriller
Year Published: 1982
Pages: 200
Rating: 2/5

Interesting but somewhat poorly-written account of a crime startling for it's time and setting. Most interesting to me is the controversy surrounding the alleged killer's conviction--many, including the killer himself, maintain that he is innocent,despite much evidence to the contrary. A google search of the killer's name highlights this debate in forum discussions. Much of the book is interviews and court transcripts.

Challenge/s: None
Book-a-week #: 32
