Read The Mistress From Hell and find out why Ray Dunning would give anything to turn back the clock and change the fatal decision he made, while slightly worse for drink, in a crowded bar in Townsville, Queensland. An older woman had been giving him the eye from across the smokey room. "Why not?" he thought to himself, and made the decision that he has regretted for so many years on an almost daily basis.
Regret was not something which Two-Gun Crowley was famous for. Lee Greene charts the pointless murder of a young nickel-a-dance parlous hostess, Virginia Brennen, which ultimately led to the executions of Francis Two-Gun Cowley and his cohort, Fats Duringer. Their dramatic siege and capture is described in vivid detail. The story is completed with an account by Lewis E. Lawes, the Warden of Sing Sing Prison, who came to know the small, "ugly duckling of society" during his time there and watched him develop into a young man who "died with love in his heart and on his lips."
This issue also contains two fascinating modern cases of husbands who murdered their wives. They are two very different men with different motives, one driven by jealous, one by malice, but both shockingly killed women with young children in cold blood.
