From the Publisher“The Crime Buff’s Guide to the Outlaw Rocky Mountains is a fascinating and macabre tour of crime locations and criminal acts where the body count is as high as the altitude. Readers will be reminded that the Wild West was really wild—and that it still is. Ron Franscell is a thorough and unflinching guide. This book is hard to put down, and voyeurs with GPS units should be both thrilled . . . and weirded out at times.”
—C. J. Box, New York Times bestselling author of Cold Wind and Back of Beyond
"One of the best true crime writers going today, Ron Franscell has provided in The Crime Buff’s Guide to the Outlaw Rocky Mountains a fascinating guide to help true crime buffs locate the crime scenes that made the Old Wild West wild, as well as those of the most notorious of modern day homicides. In a lengthy series of well-written 'mini-stories' that also provides the GPS coordinates and addresses, this book takes the adventurous reader on a historical tour from the haunts of Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch to the Denver home of a radio shock jock gunned down by white supremacists. I can imagine legions of true crime fans with Franscell's book in hand standing in these places, contemplating in real life what the characters of history saw and experienced."
