Murder and Mayhem in the Catskills


Since the pre-Revolutionary era, the seemingly idylic vacationland of the Catskills has been a theatre for some of mankind’s darkest deeds and evildoers, including the notorious Murder, Inc.. Caroline Crane explores the stories behind the bodies and bones that turn up here including the hex murder at Stone Arch Bridge, “Lethal Lizzy”, Claudius Smith and Dutch Schultz, the mobster whose fortune still lies buried in the mountains. By Caroline Crane, softcover, 120 pp., illustrations.
