Here again are the uncensored tours of the back alleys and boulevards where crime, scandal, natural disasters, and mayhem occurred. Organized neighborhood by neighborhood, it retraces the steps of a rogue's gallery of murderers, con men, wise guys, anarchists, kidnappers, bad cops, and crooked politicians. Return Again... examines such stories as: -- the baffling mystery surrounding the murder of wealthy Chicago candy heiress Helen Voorhies Brach in 1977. Was it the gardener who lured her out of her lush Glenview estate to a rendezvous with death? Was it the aging gigolo Richard Bailey? Why wasn't her body ever found?-- the 1982 murder of Dianne Masters, married to a corrupt mob attorney, that exposed the seamy underbelly of the affluent South Suburbs.-- the sensational peacock case of 1936, a slaying of a well-to-do North Side physician randomly selected for murder by a gang of boys drawing names from a telephone book.-- the Mob's greatest hits...and misses down through the years.-- the case of Thomas Neill Cream, 1880, the famous Gaslightera poisoner who drifted to Chicago from London and was freed by a city magistrate to kill again, returned to London, and allegedly reinvented himself as Jack the Ripper.-- the POW camp in suburban Des Plaines, in which German prisoners of war were housed from 1942 through 1945.
Return Again to the Scene of the Crime is destined to become aninvaluable reference book on Chicago for many years to come.
