Ue One of the outcomes of the trial and conviction of Cronin s murderers was the decline of secret Irish republican societies particularly in Chicago This is a well written and interesting book about the murder of Dr P H Cronin yet another Crime of the Century that no one s ver heard of Cronin s murder is inextricably bound up in the affairs of the Clan na Gael so I learned a great deal about Irish Republicanism in Gilded Age Chicago I already knew about Gilded Age corruption but this did certainly provide a number of new xamples O Brien is very good at xamining and xplaining ramifications both in the causes of Cronin s murder and in the conseuences and she keeps track the whole time of how the Chicago newspapers both reported the news and sometimes created the news they were reporting I like to read about Old Chicago and its history I heard about this book on NPR and decided I had to read it I must say I was disappointed The author did a great job or research but in the nd the story behind the murder of Dr Cronin was just not that intriguing a subject for a full length book It is a good history of the American Irish Independence movement in the late 1800s but I kept waiting for something dramatic to happen and it never did I was xpecting an Erik Larson Really 35 stars Another difficult read I had recently finished The Devil s Gentleman by Harold Schecter and hoped this would be similar Unfortunately O Brien doesn t bring to life 1890s Chicago as well as Schecter brings to life a certain period I did learn a lot about the Irish in Chicago and secret societies of the time But I don t think it "would have all made as much sense if I hadn t taken Revolution and Nationalism in "have all made as much sense if I hadn t taken Revolution and Nationalism in 1780 on thirty years ago in college And that was pretty sketchy memory Supposedly this was a crime that riveted America in the 1890s but it really wasn t that interesting or xciting My biggest take away like in The Devil s Gentleman was the coverage of US news reporting in the 1890s which makes today s chants of fake news seem laughable Or really nothing has changed at all about mainstream media Secret Irish societies political intrigue abroad and in America murder and a press that much like today is concerned about headlines than reporting Truth Some Truths May Some truths may been know about Dr Cronin s murder and the press reports certainly helped to muddle informatio. Rish Chicago bringing to life a rich cast of characters and tracing the spectacular rise and fall of the secret Irish American society Clan na Gael She draws on real life accounts and sources from the United States Ireland and Britain to cast new light on Clan na Gael and reveal how Irish republicanism swept across the United States Destined to be a true crime classic Blood Runs Green is an nthralling tale of a murder that captivated the world and reverberated through society long after the coffin close. Rick Cronin surfaced and it was determined that his injuries had been sustained during a prolonged attack with multiple instruments including an ice pick The funeral of the murdered doctor brought Chicago to a standstill and sparked a widespread police investigation capped by a protracted trial Although the murder is purportedly at the heart of the narrative there is much intriguing history detailed here Perhaps the xtensive backstory regarding the secret societies and the history of Chicago are important for understanding the motivation behind the murder but there are times that the "Reader May Feel As "may feel as Doctor Cronin s death is far less important than the actions of the societies The unfortunate result is that the backstoryhistory bogs down the telling of the tale and often relegates the murder to something other than the primary focus of the narrativeVoluminous notes a listing of organization and terms and an xtensive bibliography of both primary and secondary sources all follow the narrative providing both information and resource information for readers I really like the way the author writes and the tying in of a lot of variables and histories to make a very interesting read I just wanted a little in the investigation and picturesillustrations from the periodicals A really well written book Agree with other reviewersinteresting to learn about Irish Americans in Chicago in the 1880s the Clan na Gael and such an infamous Chicago murder case but it did have a bit too much detail at times A meticulously researched history of the killing of Dr PH Cronin of Chicago in May 1889 by rivals in a Irish American revolutionary group O Brien doesn t weave a narrative like Erik Larsen or David McCullough but it s rich with history for long time ChicagoansThe killing took place a month before the June 1889 vote by the city to annex the surrounding villages of Lake View Hyde Park Lake Cicero and Jefferson and inept police work by Lake View police may have been a factor in the vote to consolidate The murder took place in Lake View in the 3400 block of what is now N Roscoe the body was dumped in a retention basin at Foster Broadway 100 yards from our first house many street names have changed in the 125 years gone by Michigan Avenue was Pine Street until after the Chicago Fire Foster was 59th Street at the time of Cronin s death Broadway was Evanston Aven. Of Cronin’s murder from the police investigation to the trial It is a story of hotheaded journalists in pursuit of sensational crimes of a bungling police force riddled with informers and spies and of a secret revolutionary society determined to free Ireland but succeeding only in tearing itself apart It is also the story of a booming immigrant population clamoring for power at a time of unprecedented change From backrooms to courtrooms historian Gillian O’Brien deftly navigates the complexities of .
