Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Connecticut's reputation as a peaceable kingdom only intensifies our interest in the violent crimes that have taken place within its borders. Freelance historian Bryan Ethier explores those bloody misdeeds in True Crime Connecticut, a compilation that focuses not just on the shootings, stabbings, and poisonings, but also on the often dramatic courtroom proceedings that followed. Glimpses into human nature at its most extreme.
