The Pied Piper (Bloodlands Collection)

With makeup and an affected Elvis pout, Tucsons Charlie Schmid was a crude parody of a bad-boy heartthrob. In 1964, he still had a hold on girls whod follow him anywhere. He murdered three of them.It was the dawn of the free-love movementperfect for a magnetic madman whod also foreshadow its end a few years later in the malignant charisma of Charles Manson. The inspiration for a classic story by Joyce Carol Oates, Schmid, the most bizarre serial killer of any era, was the epitome of a narcissist flattered into believing he could get away with murder.The Pied Piper is part of Bloodlands, a chilling collection of short page-turning historical narratives from bestselling true-crime master Harold Schechter. Spanning a century in our nations murderous past, Schechter resurrects nearly forgotten tales of madmen and thrill-killers that dominated the most sensational headlines of their day....

  • Joseph Callahan

    Okay,easy read.

  • Kylie

    High interest writing style.

    This short history of an American killer is a short read. The author wrote about the facts in a memorable and bold manner. The narrative sucks you back in time and provides a glimpse into the life of a killer.

  • Aaron Kelley

    Quick but good read

    I started reading this book after stumbling upon it on Amazon. The book is a really quick read i think I finished in a little over an hour. I wish the book had more details i felt at times it just skimmed over some facts. If your into serial killers or true crime check this book out.

  • Patrick

  • Amber Machado

    This was a quick read. A lot of information and while the story could have used more details for the length if the story the details were enough. Good read

  • Philip
