The Nevada Alumni Association Book Club will begin reading The Case of the Murderous Dr. Cream: The Hunt for a Victorian Era Serial Killer on August 5th.
We are so excited to sit down for a live Author Talk with Dean Jobb about The Case of the Murderous Dr. Cream, a 2022 nominee for the Andrew Carnegie Medal! You won't want to miss what is sure to be an exhilarating discussion on Wednesday, October 5th at 2pm.
"The story of the infamous poisoner Neill Cream is so many things--horrifying, fascinating, and insightful, a portrait of late 19th-century police work at a time when the idea of the professional detective was just starting to take shape. And in this vivid and compelling book, Dean Jobb does full justice to that story."—Deborah Blum, New York Times bestselling author of The Poisoner's Handbook
"Jobb does a masterful job of following the investigation, which ranged from England to the United States to Canada, and of presenting Dr. Cream not merely as a murderer, but as a complex, unstable, and deeply fascinating individual. True crime doesn't get any better than this."—Booklist
