Just the Facts: True Tales of Cops and Criminals
Bill Tilghman, legendary Western lawman at the turn of the century. Mary Cecilia Rogers, the real-life ?Marie Roget? whose story inspired Edgar Allan Poe. FBI Special Agent Ed Mireles, who?literally single-handedly?took down two murderous bank robbers in South Miami. Their stories and many more are brought to life by Jim Doherty, ?Just the Facts? columnist for Mystery Readers Journal.?Jim Doherty combines the cool eye of a law enforcement professional (which he is) with the fiery enthusiasm of a fan (which he also is) in a superb collection of essays detailing the true-crime back-stories of some mystery fiction?s greatest yarns. These crisp, no-nonsense accounts are hypnotically readable, and the Eliot Ness chapter alone is worth the price of admission.? ?Max Allan Collins, author of Road To Perdition
