Gripping Story: Should be made into a movie!

Gene O'Shea has done a remarkable job in telling how two ATF agents solved a heralded Chicago murder mystery 40 years after the killings. Chicago was shocked in 1955 when the naked bodies of three young boys were found in a ditch in a forest preserve. An incredible effort on the part of police and investigative authorities for years was unable to solve this horrible crime. It took two outstanding agents, John Rotunno and Jim Grady, through intensive investigation to crack this "cold case." O'Shea has detailed a most interesting summary of just how these agressive agents turned up enough evidence to convict horseman Kenneth Hansen. His book is a fascinating read. This worthy story would make a top-notch movie...

Connecting the dots

If you grew up in metropolitan Chicago you are aware of the events covered in this story. Your eyes have glazed over countless news stories and telecasts, all of which served to confuse you more than help you. O'Shea has superbly connected the dots of crime stories more complex than the collective Dashielle Hammett. Terrifying that it is non-fiction.

Excellent read, delicately handled by the author

This was a fast read, the author handled this sad story with delicate care, it is a testimony that eventually whether you believe it or not what comes around goes around.

Couldn't Put it Down . . .

This is a sad brutal story 40 years in the making. O'Shea brings the outfit, Chicago Horse syndicate and the infamous Jayne gang uncomfortably close to the reader--especially parents. The author masterfully weaves the past and present into a well written, easily understood history of the brutal crimes committed against three innocent young boys in 1955. The ATF agents who cracked this cold case deserve the gratitude of every parent. They never gave up. Thanks.

An excellent read!

What an excellent first go around for O'Shea! He manages to weave the inticacies of all the characters in a way that is easy to understand and yet very poignant. I really enjoyed reading this book and was glad that justice finally wins out! A must read!
