This is the history of a city’s one-hundred-year struggle to leave its past behind, to understand, itself, and to make sense of the everyday mayhem of life in a metropolis being born.
Jeffrey Dahmer was called “The Milwaukee Cannibal”, but he wasn’t the only bad boy in the city, although most of the criminals written about in this book are most likely unknown or forgotten. Sorted into categories such as “Murder”, “Accidents”, “Vice”, and “Secrets” this is a compilation of true accounts from Milwaukee during its ‘growing pains’.
These are very brief accounts. Not extremely detailed but factual. Mr. Prigge records what is know and leaves the speculating to our imaginations. Well written and concise, I would recommend this book.
