Slaughter on North LaSalle author to visit Spades Park

Slaughter on North LaSalleRobert L. Snow, author of Slaughter on North LaSalle (2012), will visit the Spades Park Library to discuss his book on Tuesday, October 1st at 6:30 p.m.

This program is presented in partnership with Bookmamas book store.

From Penguin Putnam:

On December 1, 1971, the bodies of Robert Gierse, James Barker, and Robert Hinson were found in their blood-spattered Indianapolis home. All three had reputations as prodigious womanizers, hard-drinking bar fighters, and unscrupulous businessmen–the kind of men with more enemies than friends.

When detectives searched the home and discovered an address book used as a sex contest scorecard, their new suspect list included jilted one-night stands, jealous boyfriends, and husbands–dozens upon dozens of names. Sensational reports and rumors soon overwhelmed the investigation , and real answers eluded the police and the media alike for three decades, until Roy West, a detective with a reputation for cracking “unsolvable” cases, re-opened the files . . .
