Kitty Genovese's death in March 1963 echoed worldwide as a reminder of man's lack of care for other human beings. Three separate attacks by her assailant were witnessed by 38 of her neighbors in Kew Gardens, Queens, New York. None of them took the time to call the police, a call that would likely have saved Genovese's life. Instead she was murdered in cold blood and died soon after being transported to a hospital. Her killer, Winston Moseley, is from a family of African-Americans who settled in Selma, AL. By 1940 Winston Moseley's father was a porter in Manhattan, New York City. Winston was raised in the big city metropolis. My book profiles his crimes and also offenses which he admitted guilt to, but may or may not have been guilty of. Kitty Genovese was one of possibly three women murdered by Moseley. At 78 he is still incarcerated in 2014 despite waging a long campaign for parole. He has written letters to the New York Times and other newspapers throughout the New York City area. My work describes extensively the crimes that were perpetrated against Kitty Genovese, Annie May Johnson and teenage Barbara Kralik. The reader must decide who was responsible for the deaths of Johnson and Kralik. There is also considerable doubt as to whether these two women were shot with a gun, or like Genovese, stabbed to death. I have researched my writing with ancestral records, city directories, and newspaper accounts from 1964.

It took me about 20 minutes to read this book. Although it was interesting, it did not give me much information on the murder of Kitty Genovese. I would not reccommend this title if you are looking to learn about the heinous crime that Winston Moseley supposedly committed.
