The Axeman: The Brutal History of the Axeman of New Orleans by Wallace Edwards
Between 1918 to 1919 a serial killer ran rampant throughout New Orleans. His weapon of choice? The axe. He didn't spare women. Or children. Or even men. There was only one kind of person who could be sparred from the blade of his axe: the home of a person playing jazz music. At least eight people were brutally murdered. Who could have been responsible for this crime, and how was the Mafia connected? Did a corrupt police department intentionally leave this case unsolved?
Come, if you dare, as Absolute Crime takes you on the hunt for one of the most brutal killers who ever lived.
