Meet 18 of the Midwest’s most atrocious and vile human beings. Read histories of murder and mayhem committed by individuals with burning anger and contempt for societal norms, and witness the macabre visions of their personal demons driving them to commit acts so reprehensible that they have earned for themselves a place in the annals of criminal history. Meet Micajah and Wiley Harpe, horrendous murderers who left a bloody trail of forty bodies behind them. Find out what happened to Belle Gunness’s beaus. Visit the H. H. Holms “Murder Castle,” and read accounts of Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, John Dillinger, and more. For those future criminals who would follow in the footsteps of the notorious mentioned here, parting images are given: the gas chamber, gallows, firing squads, lethal injections, electric chairs, and tortured lives listening to the ticking of clocks from behind steel cell doors.
