Overview

This is true crime for every country home bed table.
Containing accounts of ten classic murders and two inexplicable disappearances, Vintage Vermont Villainies is a veritable "best of the best" of Vermont homicides occurring between 1874 and 1957.

Editorial Reviews

Vermont boasts a well-earned reputation as a peaceful haven, but truth be told, the Green Mountain State has also had its fair share of infamous crimes. Vintage Vermont Villainies collects ten tales of real-life homicides perpetrated between 1874 and 1957, then, as a bonus, tosses in two baffling unsolved disappearances. The Killer in the Attic and The Maniac in the Bushes author John Stark Bellamy II has outdone himself with these hair-raising tales. Perfect for late-winter-night reading.
