Editorial Reviews

They call Philadelphia the City of Brotherly Love, but the Keystone State has also been the home of merciless killers. In True Crime Pennsylvania, Patricia Martinelli escorts readers on a fascinating tour of the state's darkest side. Readers might recall several of the cases that she spotlights, which include the heartbreaking Nickel Mines Amish school massacre and the 20-year hunt for intellectual activist Ira Einhorn, who killed his girlfriend and then stuffed her in a closet. Bracing true tales.
