Kudos from Strand Magazine on Virginia McConnell’s latest book The Bell of Bedford Avenue: The Sensational Brooks-Burns Murder in Turn-of-the-Century New York.

“Ultimately, McConnell does a splendid job of re-creating early twentieth-century New York City and provides the reader with a compelling look at the lives of adolescents with a taste for mayhem and destruction. The Belle of Bedford Avenue is highly recommended for true-crime enthusiasts and those with an interest in New York City history.”
