In What they are saying by Brian Forschner0 Comments


On July 18, 2015, from noon to 2:00 p.m. there will be a book signing at Dayton History at Carillon Park. It will be held in the Museum Center. I will be there eager to meet you and talk about the women in “Cold Serial: The Jack the Strangler Murders.” Curt Dalton, author of, among other books, “Spilt Blood,” and “With Malice Toward All,” and Dan Baker, author of “Blood In The Streets,” will be there as well.


Dayton History is again offering trial reenactments entitled “Old Case Files” at the downtown Dayton “Old Courthouse”. You might even be selected as a member of the jury to decide the fate of this year’s accused. The dates are July 17-19, 24-26, July 31, and Aug. 1-2.  Call Dayton History for more information.

In 2013 the reenacted case was one of the women in “Cold Serial: The Jack the Strangler Murders.” The book will be sold at this year’s reenactment.  I was privileged to be the trial case historian and actually played a bit part, that of the famous Dayton reporter and writer,” Howard Burba. Howard plays prominently in my book as he reported on all but one of the murders. He eulogized my great-aunt. For those of you who attended the reenactment in 2013 you will be fascinated by the entire story of Anna Markowitz.

Curt’s and Dan’s books will be there as well.
