12.00

The bygone days of Carlisle and Cumberland County were loaded with malcontents whose vice was in drinking way too much alcohol. Sometimes, booze and bad behavior became a lethal cocktail for lawless characters twisted by bravado, jealousy or vengeance.

   Killer Hangovers: Sinful Shots of Alcohol Outrage is a non-fiction true crime book covering an almost 100-year period from 1794 to 1891. Against the backdrop of the Temperance movement, journalist and author Joseph David Cress explores forgotten cases of murder and mayhem drawn from the pages of local newspapers.

   In Killer Hangovers, readers will experience firsthand bar fights and family feuds, a Civil War murder mystery and the shooting of a soldier outside a Carlisle brothel. Readers will delve deep into the mind of a confessed killer who inflicted horror upon his wife and be privy to the strange events that turned a drinking buddy into a homicide suspect. Along the way, readers will encounter an obnoxious barfly, a neighborhood misfit, an abusive father and a medical charlatan. So belly up to the bar with author Joseph David Cress and drink down a shot of sin and woeful misdeeds.
