I’ve once again been fortunate to obtain an e-book copy of a true crime book written by this author, Jack Rosewood and the following is my honest opinion.
One would never expect that Wisconsin, “America’s Dairyland,” could also be the home of four of most vile serial killers known to this state? I find it ironic, according to Wikipedia, as to the origin for this state’s name, in that one leading theory holds that the name originated from the Miami word Meskonsing, meaning “it lies red,” a reference to the setting of the Wisconsin River as it flows through the reddish sandstone of the Wisconsin Dells. But after writing this book, I have to wonder if it can also refer to the blood of the victims staining the landscape.
Instead of concentrating his efforts, and this time with the aid of fellow author Dwayne Walker writing the introduction, to give us one depraved serial killer, we’ve been given four. While the names of Ed Gein, David Spanbauer, and Walter Ellis might evoke horrific memories to those living in Wisconsin; Jeffrey Dahmer evokes these same memories across the United States.
Mr. Rosewood has given to the aficionados of the True Crime genre of books, a book which cuts to the chase regarding the story of four infamous serial killers from Wisconsin; their lives, crimes, and ultimate capture and trial, as well as what might have been the psychological reason for their depraved behavoir in a very readable and enjoyable manner.
I believe reading one of the books in this series, might get you wanting to read more; it’s happen to me; which is why I’ve given these two authors 5 STARS.
