Ohio's reputation as a moral beacon doesn't tell the whole story-or even much of it, according to Ohio Confidential. The state has seen a tsunami of scandal in the areas of crime, drugs, sports, sex, and politics, and sometimes two together, as when Cincinnati Mayor Jerry Springer wrote a personal check to a prostitute, or Congressman Wayne Hays' mistress started talking. The book even includes murders such as the gruesome Kingsbury Run Torso killings and "Arsenic Anna," a notorious "black widow" serial killer. This compulsively readable book by a former cop showcases Ohio's multitude of sins right up to the contemporary corruptions of Governor Bob Taft and Congressman Bob Ney.
