Brian Forschner: Cold Serial

Cold Serial: The Jack The Strangler Murders by Brian Forscher
Cold Serial: The Jack The Strangler Murders by Brian Forscher

Cold Serial paints the picture of five girls who were raped and strangled in the Dayton, Ohio, area between 1900 and 1909. The working conditions, lack of rights for women and police protection, and the sexism of the age portray these girls as victims not only of a crime but also of their time. 

Using criminological thinking of today, author Brian Forschner attempts to solve and bring closure to these these forgotten cases.
