What a story in Arizona history!! Because of the notations from various paper articles it tended to repeat itself but was very interesting.Will be reading the others soon.
Very interesting that the case is written by all the newspaper items of the day. Definitely buying the other 2 installments of this series. Found some of the comments at the end of the articles by The Morgue Lady comical.
