Book Details

Dark Secrets in America’s Heartland

Clarence Larson married twice. Both of his wives met suspicious ends . . . and yet, he was never convicted of any crime. How can that be? In this masterful exploration of Larson’s life, historian Patricia Lubeck illuminates the failures of procedure and early forensic science that seemingly allowed a murderer to walk free. From the horrifying “accident” that killed his first wife Martha to the strange series of circumstances surrounding the “disappearance” of his second wife Jean, Victims of Foul Play paints a vivid portrait of a sinister man. Richly detailed, with information drawn from original source material and the author’s personal interviews with key players in Larson’s story, this chilling and compelling true crime story is a tribute to two women who deserve truth and justice.
