    1. On November 29, 1909 an apparent suicide was called into a police station in East Orange, New Jersey. Upon arriving at the house the county physician found the only living inhabitant to be a woman in a long black dress, her face entirely obscured by heavy veils. The victim, the woman's niece, was dead in the bathtub, clutching a washcloth in one hand.Suspicious circumstances surrounding the death, including the fact that the victim had apparently been lying in the bathtub a full 24-hours before [...]

    2. Finally, all my questions about the death of Ocey Snead are answered! I think. This was a great study of a weird, weird, weird situation.

    3. Norman Zierold is also the author of Little Charley Ross, the story of what is in my opinion one of the most fascinating kidnapping cases in American history, a case for which my own website was named.

    4. This was a fascinating book. Zierold does a good job of stating the facts of the case. It was bizarre, and though I tend to lean towards my own suspicions of what happened, the book is pretty open-ended. I appreciated the chapters that delved into the sisters' and Ocey's family history, showing the decline of a genteel Southern family. The book was very tragic, and I ended up reading it quickly in a few short days.
