Summary
In Gilded Age Boston, a serial criminal stalked, tortured, and sometimes killed children in working-class neighborhoods. Roseanne Montillo's The Wilderness of Ruin explores the criminal investigation that identified the murderer and the resulting international medical and judicial debate over the nature of criminal minds. Drawing on contemporaneous accounts, including the killer Jesse Pomeroy's autobiography, Montillo produces a rich and gripping narrative of the murders and of Boston's late-19th-century history. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
