Description

Perry vividly captures Jazz Age Chicago to tell the true story of the murderesses who became media sensations and inspired the musical 'Chicago.'

The untold true story of the murders that inspired the iconic musical "Chicago."
With a thrilling fast-paced narrative award-winning journalist Douglas Perry vividly captures the sensationalized circus atmosphere that gave rise to the concept of the celebrity criminal- and gave Chicago its most famous story. "The Girls of Murder City" recounts two scandalous sex-fueled murder cases and how an intrepid "girl reporter" named Maurine Watkins turned the beautiful media-savvy suspects-"Stylish Belva" and "Beautiful Beulah"-into the talk of the town. Fueled by rich period detail and a cast of characters who seemed destined for the stage "The Girls of Murder City" is a crackling tale that simultaneously presents the freewheeling spirit of the Jazz Age and its sober repercussions.
