Nicole Clarke highlights stories of witch trials, jails, haunted cemeteries, and true-crime tales—a man hit by train, a murder for hire, fireworks gone awry on Salem Common, and the Boston Strangler. You get the sense that she’s read through a stack of 1890s newspapers and matter-of-factly recounts the gory bits.
