The author offers up the stories of some of the most bizarre crimes in the state of Missouri -- some recent and some from quite a few years ago. It was an easy and fun book to read. My only complaint is that it was only 126 pages long and would have been more enjoyable if the author had included maybe a dozen more cases.

A compilation of crimes and criminals in MO. Many of these stories I have already read or known about but when they are all in one book right in front of you!! I don't think I will be traveling to MO anytime soon let's put it that way lol.The story of Stagger Lee comes out of MO. This book is also a short but rich history of the state that I enjoyed knowing about. It's a good quick read.

This book was well written and well researched. Being a Missouri resident, I was familiar with most of the crimes covered, and it was interesting to read them all.

Very interesting. I remembered many of the crimes. I gave it as a gift.
I found it hard to believe that there were that many harden criminals in Missouri, in such a small amount of time. I guess you just don't know, until you find someone who writes about it. Maybe I should do a book about Virginia or West Virginia. I might be surprised.
