Description

Eric Stanway, author of “Madame Sherri,” “The Old Rindge House” and “Mysteries of Monadnock” will be discussing and signing his new book, “Stone Cold Murder” at the Toadstool Bookshop in Keene on Saturday, February 1 at 2 p.m.

This book comprises four case histories of 19th-century New Hampshire murderers. First up is Joseph LaPage, who decapitated 18-year-old Josie Langmaid in 1875. Then there are the drunken ruffians John Brunell and Arthur McSoley, who beat the proprietor of the Rindge Hotel to death in 1891. Following that is the homicidal career of George Abbott, aka Frank Almy, whose amorous obsession with Christie Warden ended in murder. Finally, there is the tale of Franklin Evans, whose 14-year rampage of rape and murder ended only when he slaughtered his own grand-niece.

Although these events occurred over a century ago, they still resonate with a sense of horror and tragedy, undiminished through time.
