Overview


Ohio's reputation as a moral beacon doesn't tell the whole story -- or even much of it, according to Ohio Confidential. The state has seen a tsunami of scandal in the areas of crime, drugs, sports, sex, and politics, and sometimes two together, as when Cincinnati Mayor Jerry Springer wrote a personal check to a prostitute, or Congressman Wayne Hays' mistress started talking. The book even includes murders such as the gruesome Kingsbury Run Torso killings and "Arsenic Anna," a notorious "black widow" serial killer. This compulsively readable book by a former cop showcases Ohio's multitude of sins right up to the contemporary corruptions of Governor Bob Taft and Congressman Bob Ney.

Editorial Reviews

Yes, the fixed stare on the front cover belongs to Charles Manson. The Helter Skelter madman is just one of the marauders and miscreants featured in Ohio Confidential. Political and sex scandals abound in this zesty collection of Buckeye State misdeeds. Perfect for jury room reading.
