Jim Gifford, formerly a professor at Western Carolina University and Morehead State University, has directed the Jesse Stuart Foundation for decades now. Edwina Pendarvis is a published poet and author of fiction and non-fiction books. She is Professor Emeritus at Marshall University. These two editors brought together an outstanding set of 17 authors for these 23 essays that illuminate some of our region’s most notorious murders. Victims of these murders range from children to the elderly, from a nun to a wealthy socialite. One of the saddest aspects of these stories is that so many murderers were never ascertained, or arrested, or convicted.
