About the Book

There’s Nothing Like Capital Crime!

   Murders, Mysteries and History is an entertaining, fast-paced, and unique mix of forgotten killings, investigations, and criminal trials culled from court records and mixed with the news of long ago.
   Get the scoop on hundreds of real crimes and unsolved murders. Follow the clues to identify the unknown found washed up on Lake Erie shores. Work your way along sometimes-twisted paths to imprisonment or freedom. Victims, suspects, perpetrators. Judges, lawyers, witnesses, juries. Time spent in the big house, executions, and simply getting away with murder.
   If you love true-crime or mysteries, or enjoy history, this book is for you! Never gory, but haunting, fascinating, and perhaps brutal—all at the same time.
   Murders, Mysteries and History reminds us that the past is never perfect.

About the Author

Don Hilton was raised as the second of three sons in a small town in northwest Pennsylvania by a family of unapologetic storytellers and was lucky enough to never quite know if the tales he heard were true.
   :Easily bored, his life has been a broad mix of experiences; boat pilot, lab technician, sweetheart, husband, post-graduate research fellow, geologist, statistician, teacher, stand-up comedian, computer support analyst, father, martial arts instructor, freelance writer, and author.
   :He's done lots of dumb things that should have killed him dead, struggled with the blues, and has been rewarded with some slight measure of wisdom and peace.
   :The only constant has been his storytelling. After more than a half-century of practice he's developed some talent. He's still not near as good as the old folks he used to listen to, but he's getting there.
