Overview

Collecting together engrossing, illustrated true crime stories, this graphic novel set tells three infamous murders in an entertaining fashion. An early Hollywood scandal is detailed in “Famous Players,” as movie director William Desmond Taylor was found dead in his bungalow with a bullet in his back and no clear trail to his killer. In “The Lindbergh Child” the infamous abduction of aviator Charles Lindbergh’s 20-month-old son is captured in all of its painful mystery, telling a terrible tale of extortion and a family that paid the ultimate price. “The Case of Madeleine Smith” shares the affair of an upper-class architect’s daughter and her love interest of lesser means, Emile L’Anglier. Their fantasy romance takes a dark turn as Madeleine becomes bored with her societally troublesome lover and arsenic begins to find its way into his tea. Maps and diagrams are incorporated into the stories to reflect the real trials that occurred, and all are based on true stories, backed by extensive research and a bibliography.
