Abstract:

"Murder at 40 Below" is a gritty yet fascinating account of many of Alaska's most notorious and unusual murder cases. Drawn from police files, eyewitness accounts, and news reports, these stories introduce criminals and their extreme crimes in a land known for extremes of other kinds. Included are stories about a churchgoing big-game hunter, Robert E. Hanson, who stalked topless dancers for more than a decade; and Robert Stroud, an ignorant construction worker who killed a Juneau bartender, went to jail, and eventually gained a national following as "The Birdman of Alcatraz."
