A Collection Of True Crime Short Stories–

Three British Bluebeards

First up, from the snarky true crime pioneer Edmund Pearson we have the story of a distinguished poisoner. Following that, “The Ugly Romeo” tells of a serial bathtub murderer, and we’ll close with the grisly story of a married man who loved his girlfriend to pieces.
