    How can you not like a book called They Died Crawling Very likeable survey of Cleveland disasters interspersed with crime sprees, with a riot thrown in for good measure The author can get a little lipsmackingly impersonal about the people involved so with the criminals than the disasters , but the general lessons are 1 Cleveland criminal justice authorities were often corrupt and or inept in the early 20th century 2 What a good thing there s some sort of regulation of businesses utilities sales [...]

    This book was very interesting, at least for me The stories were fascinating, but also completely depressing I love learning new things about my hometown and seeing a glimpse of history This book included stories about the waterworks explosion, a couple of murder mysteries including the famous Sam Shepperd trial and some other crazy things It was a pretty good read Easy to get through and very interesting.

    Book about the worst crimes and disasters in Cleveland s history Includes 15 different stories, including the 1954 murder of Marilyn Sheppard and subsequent trials of her husband Sam Sheppard, the 1944 East Ohio Gas Company explosion and fire on the near east side, as well as the still unsolved 1910 murder of millionaire William Lowe Rice in Cleveland Heights Almost as interesting as the stories of the crimes themselves are the descriptions of Cleveland from different eras.

    As a native Clevelander, I had to read this At times, the tongue in cheek tone got annoying, but on the whole it was an interesting collection of stories, some I had heard and or read about others were new to me.

    The first in a series of books about the Cleveland area I had no idea the crazy stuff that has happened in Cleveland s past A definite must read for anyone living in Ohio.

    Amazing little stories of disaster and death in Cleveland, Ohio, the city known to many as the mistake by the lake Perfect Christmas gift.

    While the stories are fascinating and give a glimpse into Cleveland s darker past, it s hard to ignore the subpar writing and redundant style.
