In the summer of 1974, a string of murders rocked the small town of West Union, Ohio. Six people, all Rosary Catholics, were killed with Catholic religious symbols - a crucifix, rosary beads, and a statue of the Virgin Mary - left at the crime scenes. The killings stopped after the seventh victim, but the investigators were never able to solve the case. Thirty years later, the murderer is still at large.

In The Rosary Murders, William X. Kienzle brings readers back to the summer of 1974, when the murders took place. He tells the story of the investigators, the victims, and the townspeople who were left wondering who could have committed such a heinous crime. Kienzle brings the reader up to date on the case, showing how the investigation has been ongoing for decades and still has not led to an arrest. He also includes interviews with the investigators and the victims' families, giving readers an inside look at; 8vo; 257 pages.
