Title: Death of a Kootch Show Girl

Author: Corey Recko

Release Date: 25 February 2017

Summary:

It’s Halloween night 1953, the last night of the carnival in rural Ohio, and a stripper turns up dead. Tom Davis, the chief of police, orders the carnies to stay in town while he investigates, but there are no leads to Mary’s killer—no fingerprints on the murder weapon, no blood but Mary’s at the scene, no foreign hairs or fibers—no clues of any kind.

Brian Stockton, a reporter for the local paper, hopes this will be his break into the big time, so he begins to investigate as well. But, alas, the killer’s identity eludes him, too. As tensions build, the carnies become paranoid, pointing fingers at each other. Could it be the owner, Bill Harris, the one who discovered the body? Or was it perhaps Gino Guglielmo, the man who runs the kootch show and has a nasty temper? Was it the eccentric clown, Otto Radowski, a man with dark secrets in his past and who just happens to have Mary’s cat?

And how did the killer manage to commit such a violent act without leaving a single speck of evidence? Mary certainly wasn’t killed by a ghost…or was she?

~ About Author ~

Corey Recko’s first book, Murder on the White Sands: The Disappearance of Albert and Henry Fountain, won the Wild West History Association’s award for the “Best Book on Wild West History” for 2007. New Mexico Magazine said of the book, “The story moves along like detective fiction . . . .” Of his second book, A Spy for the Union: The Life and Execution of Timothy Webster, the Civil War News review of the book concluded, “Just about everyone will find something to like in this tale of Civil War espionage that mixes in portions of heroism, intrigue, cowardice and betrayal.” Along with books, Recko has written articles on a variety of historical topics for magazines and historical journals and has become a sought after speaker (including an appearance on C-SPAN). Death of a Kootch Show Girl, a murder mystery about a death at a small-town carnival in 1953, is Corey Recko’s first novel.

Recko is the author of two mystery books (one fiction and one non-fiction) and one biography. All three are available on Amazon in both print and kindle formats.

Death of a Kootch Show Girl is about a mysterious death at a 1950s carnival in a small town near Cleveland.

A Spy for the Union is a biography of New York City policeman, Pinkerton detective (under Allan Pinkerton) and Civil War spy Timothy Webster.

Murder on the White Sands tells the story of the murder of a lawyer/politician and his young son near the White Sands in old west New Mexico. The murder is investigated by Sheriff Pat Garrett, the man who killed Billy the Kid.

Corey Recko lives in Hudson, Ohio.
