Win Copies of XXth Century Murders Black Dahlia and Axe-Man!

Black Dahlia

I have, as a prize pack for a lucky reader, a set of Black Dahlia and The Terrible Axe-Man of New Orleans, both by Rick Geary, both part of the Treasury of XXth Century Murder true-crime graphic novel series, and both new in paperback. (My thanks to the publisher for providing the copies.)

Geary does a fantastic job laying out what’s known and unknown of these cases. The first is likely better known, about a woman trying to make it in post-War Hollywood who only gained fame as a corpse. The second, set in 1918 Louisiana, is about a serial killer (perhaps) attacking immigrant grocers in grisly fashion.

The official release date for these two volumes is December 1, so win them before you can buy them! To enter to win this contest, leave a comment below telling me your favorite unsolved murder of the past 100 years. A winner will be picked randomly from all entries on Wednesday, November 21.

U.S. addresses only, please. Winners will be emailed to confirm address. If email is not answered within 24 hours or a valid email address is not provided, a replacement winner will be selected. Your email won’t be used for any other purpose.

    For something unsolved that occurred in the 21st century, I guess I’d have to say the Long Island/Craigslist killer.

  • The Zodiac Killer, it’s kind of shocking that it hasn’t been solved yet.

    BTW: I do have a US Address.

    The Black dahlia murder

  • James Schee

    Favorite is a hard way to describe a murder, but one that really scared and still scares the hell out of me was the Tylenol Murders in Chicago in 1982. I can remember my mom throwing away all our Tylenol.

    The presumed murder of Jimmy Hoffa. That it was presumed, shows how successful it probably was.

  • Thanks to everyone who participated! (And to David for pointing out I needed to clarify my post language.) A winner was selected and emailed. Thanks for reading!
