OverviewFrom the author of "Eliot Ness, " the gripping true story of the murders that inspired the iconic musical "Chicago."
With a thrilling, fast-paced narrative, award-winning journalist Douglas Perry vividly captures the sensationalized circus atmosphere that gave rise to the concept of the celebrity criminal--and gave Chicago its most famous story. "The Girls of Murder City" recounts two scandalous, sex-fueled murder cases and how an intrepid "girl reporter" named Maurine Watkins turned the beautiful, media-savvy suspects--"Stylish Belva" and "Beautiful Beulah"--into the talk of the town. Fueled by rich period detail and a cast of characters who seemed destined for the stage, "The Girls of Murder City" is a crackling tale that simultaneously presents the freewheeling spirit of the Jazz Age and its sober repercussions.
