    About the book:
    True Crime Stories of Upstate South Carolina by Cathy Pickens

    Upstate South Carolina is a scenic region of business centers, farms and textile towns. But it
    has its dark side. In 1924, a local resident was convicted for poisoning a neighbor in a case
    that went to the state supreme court. One resident aided a prisoner in a daring prison
    break in the name of love. Fairfield County had its own version of witch trials. Crime writer
    Cathy Pickens brings a novelist’s eye to the Upstate’s real crime stories and the
    international headlines and the little-known tales that define the sinister—and
    quirky—side of her home state.
