True crime lovers will want to read, reread and relish THE CALIFORNIA SNATCH RACKET, a gripping detail of kidnapping during the Prohibition and Depression eras.

Historians, James R. Smith and W. Lane Rogers teamed up and brilliantly chronicled crimes so horrendous and brutal that even though the perpetrators are long gone, I lock my doors tightly by day and night.

This book tells you how the crime transpired and what the criminal said and thought in direct quotes. Most disturbing was the fiend who dreamed of strewing body parts along the road--what a chilling aspiration.

This is truly a six star book out of five.

No, never mind.

We are very fortunate to have James R. Smith here--a member of this forum.

He is historysmith. Obviously he is a meticulous writer as he and Lane co-authored this book.

I wish Lane could see how well the book is doing. Today the book placed 81 out of 1072 books--that gives it an A.

Only $11.53 for 395 pages--a real bargain.

It is tightly written with no wasted words.

Shelagh,

Rubbish is in the book.
It made me lonesome.
So is silliness.

I received an email from Jackie and Joey with a new address. I think she was sorry about the anthology.

I just talked to her. She and Joey are moving to Muncie, IN.

Her daughter is there.

I guessed she was moving to be close to her daughter.

Also got the change of address. Jackie remembers those who meant something to Dick.
