Life in Louisville in the years following the Civil War, and through the turn of the century, was as exciting as it was dangerous. The city continued to grow as important urban hub of culture and commerce, connecting the South with the Midwest and Northern states. As Keven McQueen proves in this collection of morbid tales of crime and depravity, life in Louisville certainly had a darker side. Journey back to a time when Louisville's streets were filled with rail cars, its alleys populated by thieves, and its brothels hummed with activity. Whether it's the tale of the marriage of a convicted murderer to a notorious prostitute, or the exploits the criminal duo dubbed Louisville's Bonnie and Clyde," this is a true crime collection that is truly hard to believe."

About the Author:

Keven McQueen is an instructor in the Department of English at Eastern Kentucky University. He is the author of twelve books on biography, history, folklore, ghost lore, natural disasters and historical true crime.

Review:

"'Louisville, Murder & Mayhem' reminds us that our city of old had its fair share of decadence, debauchery and deadliness. Lovers of true crime will be thrilled to find a book devoted to Louisville's more iniquitous side, showcasing the darker fringes of criminality from after the Civil War through the turn of the century. Villainy and ribaldry once strode hand in hand down our decorous lanes, and McQueen captures it all with obvious glee."

"...Keven McQueen, a teacher at Eastern Kentucky University, has combined impeccable research with a clear love of the material to envelop the reader in the era from the 1880s to the 1930s." --The Courier-Journal
