Kindle Book Bargains: The Good-Bye Door (True Crime), by Diana Franklin. Publisher: Kent State University Press (May 10, 2011)The Good-Bye Door
(True Crime)
by Diana Franklin

-- The true story of the first female serial killer to die in the electric chair. Nicknamed “the Blonde Borgia,” Anna Marie Hahn was a cold-blooded serial killer who preyed on the elderly in Cincinnati's Over-the-Rhine district in the 1930s.

When the State of Ohio strapped its first woman into the electric chair, Hahn gained a place in the annals of crime as the nation’s first female serial killer to be executed in the chair.

Told here for the first time in riveting detail is Anna Marie’s gripping story, an almost unbelievable tale of multiple murders, deceit, and greed. Born in Bavaria in 1906, Anna Marie brought shame to her pious family when, as a teenager, she gave birth to an illegitimate son, Oscar. She was shipped off to America in 1929 where she initially lived with elderly relatives in Cincinnati.

A year later she married Philip Hahn, a Western Union telegrapher, with whom she bought a new house and opened a delicatessen/bakery. Pressed economically by the Great Depression, the ever-resourceful Anna Marie found other ways to get the money to support her passionate past-time—betting on horses.

She tried burning down the house, then the deli, for the insurance; and she tried killing her husband, also for the insurance. Then she took to befriending the neighborhood elderly, latching on to their life savings before feeding them arsenic with deadly results.

For weeks her Cincinnati trial for “the greatest mass murder in the history of the country” was a front-page sensation across the nation. A thousand or more curiosity seekers came daily to the courthouse to try to get just a glimpse of her. Nearly 100 witnesses gave damning testimony against her, and the jury’s guilty verdict put her on the path to the electric chair.

Finally, after a year, all appeals were exhausted, and Anna Marie, age 32, was executed on December 7, 1938, at the state penitentiary in Columbus. True crime buffs, historians, legal professionals, and others seeking an extraordinary story will find The Goodbye Door a compelling addition to true crime literature.

From the murderous rise and fall of America's bloodiest Asian gang to the brutal lives of the New York City mobsters who ruled Hell's Kitchen, reality is often more thrilling than fiction. Today's selection of five true-crime stories hammers home this point:
Born to Kill: The Rise and Fall of America's Bloodiest Asian Gang
The Westies: Inside New York's Irish Mob
Who Killed My Daughter?
Circle of Six: The True Story of New York's Most Notorious Cop Killer and The Cop Who Risked Everything to Catch Him

and the Amulet of Thieves (Atlas Cloud Saga)
by L M J Rayner

-- 'I waited there in silence, watching as the veins in my arm bulged. The scratching and clawing at the door had stopped. They were inside. I sat towards the door, watching it without blinking, without losing concentration.

Knowing that at any minute they would find me. If I am going to die, I am going down kicking and screaming…'


Atlas Cloud, a teenage boy in way over his head, discovers that magic is real. There exists another world far beyond his imagination and he crosses over, leaving behind his normal life for one filled with magic and monsters.

Unbeknownst to him, in this new world lives a dark and evil presence; a man fueled by rage and malice. A man who threatens everything Atlas knows and loves. Atlas must face an adventure that challenges him to his very core.

Can he face the darkness?

Or will he unravel in the madness?
