Oklahoma has had more than its share of sensational legal battles with national ramifications, but for the first time in one volume, attorney/historian Kent Frates reveals the facts behind six cases that helped shape the history of the state ... and, in some cases, the nation. From bloody murders, to political scandal, to a horrific act of domestic terrorism, Oklahoma's Most Notorious Cases captures the stories, the times, and the import of these landmark trials. Populated by a host of stranger-than-fiction characters a machine-gun-toting gangster, a Cherokee outlaw, a bloodthirsty con man, a crooked governor, and a twisted soldier, the stories reveal the cold calculation inherent in the perpetrators and the guts, guile, and tenacity required of the dedicated law enforcement professionals who brought these men and women to justice. The book includes sixteen pages of historic photographs. The six cases: Machine Gun Kelly & The Urschel Kidnapping, U.S. vs. David Hall, The Girl Scout Murders, The Karen Silkwood Case, The Sirloin Stockade Murders, and the Oklahoma City Bombing.

Murrah Federal Building in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City.Populated by a host of stranger-than-fiction characters—a Cherokee outlaw, a bloodthirsty con man, a crooked governor, and a twisted soldier, the stories reveal the cold calculation inherent in the perpetrators and the guts, guile, and tenacity required of the dedicated law enforcement professionals who brought these men and women to justice.Rounding out the six cases profiled: Thee Girl Scout Murders, The Karen Silkwood Case, The Sirloin Stockade Murders, and U.S. vs. David Hall—stories of crimes solved and unsolved and all of the turmoil and controversy that comes with such crimes.
