The Girls of Murder City: Fame, Lust, and the Beautiful Killers Who Inspired Chicago by Douglas Perry

<b>The untold true story of the murders that inspired the iconic musical <i>Chicago</i>.</b><br /> <br /> With a thrilling, fast-paced narrative, award-winning journalist Douglas Perry vividly captures the sensationalized circus atmosphere that gave rise to the concept of the celebrity criminal- and gave Chicago its most famous story. <i>The Girls of Murder City</i>recounts two scandalous, sex-fueled murder cases and how an intrepid girl reporter named Maurine Watkins turned the beautiful, media-savvy suspects-Stylish Belva and Beautiful Beulah-into the talk of the town. Fueled by rich period detail and a cast of characters who seemed destined for the stage, <i>The Girls of Murder City</i>is a crackling tale that simultaneously presents the freewheeling spirit of the Jazz Age and its sober repercussions.
