"Dig a little deeper into Monmouth County sandy shores and you'll find some very sordid secrets!"


During the early 1900s, Monmouth County saw more than its fair share of crime. This book is about local history, law and order, and chaos. It recounts the lives and careers of three Monmouth County detectives during Prohbition and the Great Depression. Detectives Jacob Rue, William Mustoe and Harry Crook spent much of their time investigating murders, arresting gangsters, chasing down leads in the Lindbergh baby kidnapping, and sometimes, they crossed the line themselves.
There is plenty of intrigue for readers of true crimes, including several unsolved 'who-dun-it' cases that remain open to this day.
