Description

A series of brutal home invasions terrified Los Angeles in 1937. They ended in Chicago a year later with the arrest of African American teenager Robert Nixon, igniting racial tensions in an already appallingly divided city.

Tortured in custody and portrayed by the press in the most lurid and flagrantly racist terms, Nixon faced an all-white jury. It would be the fastest conviction in the history of Cook County. Used as inspiration for Richard Wright’s classic social protest novel, Native Son, the case against Nixon is a still-relevant examination of bigotry, suppressed rage, and the making of a murderer.

The Brick Slayer is part of Bloodlands, a chilling collection of short addictive historical narratives from bestselling true-crime master Harold Schechter. Spanning a century in our nation’s murderous past, Schechter resurrects nearly forgotten tales of madmen and thrill-killers that dominated the most sensational headlines of their day.

Love Weber

This entire series is great. I love Weber's performance--I found these by searching for him after finishing King's It, and wish he would do more.

Hm

Something about this has an unfinished quality to it, but that has more to do with the gravity of the story than the truth to it. It's dark and honest and good.

Fans of Richard Wright/Native Son must read!

A historically important case, as well as a juicy true crime fix, which I'd never heard of, with very good and important context provided. Admirers of Richard Wright and/or Native Son, may be as grateful as I am for the amazing links...including relevant citations. (NOTE: While very worthwhile and interesting info, it's still a very scanty read. It seems like a poor business ploy to create all these tiny Schecter pieces as separate purchases. They know many admire him and want to read all we can, but, really?)

Wow

This has to be my favorite of the set so far. I really want to spend hours researching about this case and learning everything I can possibly learn. I believe there is a book specifically about this case that I'd love to get ahold of and learn more about. I do fully recommend this book. I recommend all six books in this little bundle/series. Whatever you want to call it. My schedule is very busy, but I will gladly make time to research these cases!
