    Cold Blood, Cold Case

    The Schuessler-Peterson murders, the long unsolved deaths of 3 boys in 1955 Chicago, have inspired three books 'Unbridled Rage,' 'Three Boys Missing,' and 'Shattered Sense of Innocence.' All are highly recommended. This is the one that may keep you awake all night. The authors are brilliant writers and the book is exhaustively researched. Many new questions are raised: Were the victims looking for someone the night they died? Why did two of the boys, Bobby Peterson and John Schuessler, report being afraid of someone? Who was the mysterious 'Mr. Potato Head?' Who was the source of screams heard in a remote area that night? What is the meaning of the puzzling forensic evidence? Who is the elusive pedophile Ken Hansen? He was convicted of the murders, but some still have doubts. Did a mystery witness secretly confess to being the real killer? Did missing heiress Helen Brach know too much? Is she the Jane Doe in the unmarked grave? Did the same killer murder Judy Andersen in 1957 and the Grimes sisters in 1956? This book is like film noir in book format. (There a a few graphic photos.) It is unquestionably one of the greatest true crime books ever written. Read it even if you have to leave the lights on all night.
