Synopsis: On June 10, 1912, the village of Villisca, Iowa awoke to discover a mass murder had occurred while the town slept. An entire household of eight people had been axed to death in their beds. Within 24 hours, in spite of limited mass communications, the story was national and international news, knocking the White Star Titanic off the front page and captivating the general public. The mass murder became a catalyst to a growing nation starting to realize the 20th century, with all of its advancements, held new forms of terror and insecurity. If the mass murder could happen in this idyllic little village, it could happen anywhere. Author Stephen Bowman's version of the story has been compared to Capote's IN COLD BLOOD mystery as it recreates the gruesome murder and the aftermath in an expose of rural family strife and local mores toward bigotry, superstition and caste system which still exists in rural America today. The suspenseful mystery brings to life a vivid cast of characters. Through the main characters, the themes of rural life and prejudice are revealed as they each struggle with conflicts between self-respect, family honor and justice. The crime remains one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of the 20th century

About the Author: Stephen Bowman is the author of Morning Ran Red, When The Eagle Screams and Operation Monarch.

Book Description Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 285 pages. Bowman ranks with the top mystery writes - Clive CusslerBetter than Capotes In Cold Blood - Lincoln JournalAn infectious read. I could not put this book down. - Kingsport PressPaages: 422MRR, as it is known to fans, is a must for every mystery readers experience. Touted for its compelling storytelling, literary quality, and historical significance, many readers and reviewers feel that MRR shares the stage with Capotes In Cold Blood as one of the best in the genre. Based on the Villisca Axe Murders of 1912, the mass murder has become one of the most infamous unsolved crimes in American history. As with other ground-breaking books, MRR is not only about the tragedy, but has itself become an integral part of the modern-day story. Many writers had tried and failed to write the story of the famous unsolved crime. Bowman realized that it was not simply about a gruesome mass murder. It was a story about people. A love triangle. Rich against poor. Town against country. Families against families. For decades the town tried to hide the secrets of the tragedy. Bowmans book blew the lid off, but today is recognized as important to the towns history and progress. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
