    One thought on “America's Early Serial Killers: Five Cases of Frontier Madness (Murder, Scandals and Mayhem #4)”

    1. America's Early Serial Killers: Five Cases of Frontier Madness is a very interesting, quick read. Whether all five cases meet the definition of "serial killer" is debatable; however, all are fascinating/horrifying vignettes of true crime events from the 1700's to 1800's in the United States. If this sort of thing interests you, I recommend this book, which is a free read from at the time of this review.Free 09-03-15 (True Crime)amazon/dp/B00NF0MDBG?i

    2. This is the first book I have read by Mike Riley and apparently he has many. Although this book was short (about 68 pages) it was chock full of information. Sometimes I had to read sentences a few times. I wish it was longer but I guess I will just have to read his other books. If you are into serial killer books and you like your books short, then I recommend this one.

    3. Well researchedA well researched and written book about America's early serial killers. The book is proof that H H Holmes was not Americas first serial killers but perhaps one of the most famous. My only problem with the book was the lack of details with the Benders who are America's first serial killing family. But it was still a good book.

    4. A good accounting of the murdersIt would have been a bit better if the author had included a bibliography. It is very important to note sources of information when writing a book such as this. The writing is good, despite a few editing errors. The story tells in some detail of the people murdered by this serial killers and the efforts if the police to find them.It is a gruesome read as you might expect, several murders are described in detail. The writing is not that of a well seasoned writer bu [...]

    5. The subject matter of this book is interesting, however, the book is so poorly and clumsily written that I cannot get through it. I slogged through the intro (which spoke of the "shear" number of victims of these killers, gave me a chuckle and a mental image of a killer that was a cross btw Jason Voorhees and a frontier cowboy, maniacally going after people with rusty kitchen shears) and the case of the Harpe brothers, attempted to read about the next killer, a man by the name of Espinosa, but c [...]

    6. A very interesting, if brief, review of 5 of America's earliest serial killers. Of the five cases featured in this book, I had only heard of one; H.H. Holmes, who I suspect many readers will have heard of. Otherwise these were new, fascinating stories for me. The ineptitude of law enforcement, the skillful evading of the law and the absolute brutality of these crimes was staggering.A quick read; I finished it in one day. Recommend.

    7. Short easy book, read it in about an hour. Got it for free on kindle, and is cheap normally. 4 of the 5 stories I had never heard of and the final one he kind of skipped the arrest, oh wellting read, well laid out, just don't pay much for it

    8. WowBeing a true crime buff, I have trouble finding good for books I haven't already read. This one contained all new stories to me. Very interesting.

    9. Great book!Enjoyed reading and learning about new cases! Written so it is easy to read. Brings life to the old cases very informative !

    10. Loved the bookEasy to get interested in , easy to understand, great detail, straight storyline trying to collect all the true crime books by Mike Riley
