I love these Rick Geary collections They are such a pleasure to read They are well researched including a bibliography and well balanced but what I really enjoy most is his highly detailed artwork I didn't know much about the Sacco and Vanzetti murder trial before but I learned a lot from this book; even if there is still some room for doubt about their innocence there is no doubt at all that they did not receive a fair trial due to rampant anti immigrant and anti anarchist prejudice

Ts erupted all over the world They lived in a time when class differences were at a raw edge worldwide the US included and this struck far too many as evidence of repression by the ruling elite In this volume we are not dealing with some outlandish fait divers but a clash of classes and a justice system that may have failed to treat these men with any euanimity The tension throughout the book is palpable as a resul. Another stellar addition to Rick Geary's treasury of murder series I had always heard of Sacco and Vanzetti but never did know the history and details of the case In typical detail Geary lays it out and reveals the many ways the system and the politics of the day conspired against these two men getting a fair trial It's particularly chilling when you consider what modern day forensics could have revealed

The Lives of Sacco and VanzettiThe fourth entry in Geary's chronicling of famous XXth century murders tackles the extremely controversial case of Italian immigrants Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti Geary delves into his most political case yet in this series however all his favorite elements are there the murders are unsolved the attention of the media is tremendous there are multiple theories as to what really happened What's unusual about. 1920s America two men murder two other men who are carrying payroll money worth 15000 and take off with another three accomplices in a car With no leads the police end up arresting a pair of Italian Americans Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti at 10pm in a streetcar who are suspicious looking and upon further investigation are found to be heavily armed Thus begins a complicated court case which exposes the corruption of the American justice system and the prejudices of a country calling itself free Rick Geary combs through the past and presents another wonderful book about a famous murder case long forgotten by the modern public Geary's style is to show all sides to the case and highlight problems within it allowing the reader to decide for themselves on the true culprit Sacco and Vanzetti is mostly the story of a court case gone wrong from unreliable witnesses taken seriously to evidence tampering to a prejudicial judge to the defence's own incompetence though the book seems to show that Sacco and Vanzetti if you believe are innocent as I do were simply and tragically two men in the wrong place at the wrong time The book is a fascinating read from start to finish with Geary telling the story of this case with clarity and elouence bringing to life a case over eighty years old with the ease of a master storyteller Fans of Geary will delight in it and rightfully so as it's a fine crime book It might be a bit dry though for new readers to Geary looking for action for them I suggest Geary's other books The Beast of Chicago and The Terrible Ax Man of New Orleans
