    Could have been so much better. Really just surface-level ?bad things happened here?. Author is incredibly ignorant of other cultures outside of his white catholic Midwest American world. Mumbled ?what a f*cktard? many times while reading this. Unnecessarily preachy in all the ...

    Thomas H. Cook, a crime writer from Fort Payne, Alabama, now lives in Los Angeles. His 30+ previous books are fiction, but in this out-of-the-ordinary travel memoir he blends personal experience and history to tell of the ?dark places? he?s drawn to visiting. He traces his intere...

    Generally, I?m not a big reader of travel writing, but come Christmas 2017 my beloved wife scoured the shelves of a Melbourne book store in search of a gift and found a title that - knowing my proclivities which she variously describes as morbid, or at other times in a more generous ...

    Really enjoyed this memoir, and loved hearing the authors perspective and reactions to visiting such dark places, some of which I've been to myself. The historical details and background info on each place is also well done, and combined with Cook's personal thoughts gives you a really...

    This is an unusual and dark book. I read it based on a review from the WSJ. It now makes me question the WSJ reviews. It was an awful book and one whose purpose escapes me. We have enough darkness in the world today why accumulate it, write about it and try to make a lesson of it. And ...
