Overview

Palm Springs True Crime by Eri G Meeks

Ripped from the headlines, this collection of true crime stories spans the past century of criminal enterprises in Palm Springs and surounding communities. Inside you'll read about the most famous murders, mob connections, conspiracies, fraud scams, prostitution rings and more. Several of the stories go into greater depth, such as: Tribal Casinos, The Octopus, and Indian Head Nichols; Cliff Lambert and the Boiz; and The Trials and Tribulations of Ginny Foat, with facts never before revealed by the media. If you're like me, you will become downright frightened at the dark level of crime and corruption living inside the shadows, ready to claw us or those we love out of the sunshine.
