"With the meticulous attention to detail of a historian and a storyteller's eye for human drama, Bernstein shines a beam of truth on a forgotten American tragedy. Heartbreaking and riveting."
—Gregg Olsen, New York Times Bestselling Author of Starvation Heights
"A chilling and historic character study of the unfathomable suffering that desperation and fury, once unleashed inside a twisted mind, can wreak on a small town. Contemporary mass murderers Timothy McVeigh, Columbine's Dylan Klebold, and Virginia Tech's Seung-Hui Cho can each trace their horrific genealogy of terror to one man: Bath school bomber Andrew Kehoe."
—Mardi Link, author of When Evil Came to Good Hart
"Bernstein has a historian's eye for small and significant period details of fascinating interest to anyone who thinks about what the 1920s were like in Michigan, which makes it easy to pick up anywhere and read some small detail that gives you a sense for the times."
—Edward Vielmetti, community organizer in Ann Arbor, MI
"Arnie Bernstein, combines the research of a good writer with a crime reporter's insights."
—Scott Duncan, former police sergeant
"...A must read for anyone who likes true crime stories - or who thinks senseless mass killings are a modern phenomenon."
—Jack Lessenberry, Traverse City Record-Eagle
"Chicago author Arnie Bernstein has turned a tragic piece of Michigan history into a searing and painfully compelling story … Ultimately, Bath Massacre serves as a reminder that, whatever the armchair psychologists might say about the effect of violent video games and television on today's society, our modern culture has no monopoly on murderous psychopaths."
—Kristina Riggle, The Grand Rapids Press
"This affecting and thoroughly researched book is at its heart a local history gathered around a single tragic incident. Bernstein is fond of the minor details of small town life...in troubling contrast to these quotidian details are the meticulous descriptions of the human suffering Kehoe caused."
—Seth Kotch, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
