“Joe Pompeo vividly brings to life all of the color, drama, and intrigue of a century-old murder case that continues to baffle investigators to this day. Set against the backdrop of a form of journalism that would metastasize in the decades that followed, BLOOD & INK is a deft piece of investigative reporting and storytelling that refuses to lose its grip on the reader.”

Bryan Burrough, bestselling co-author of Barbarians At the Gate and Forget the Alamo

“Pompeo brilliantly presents one of the most fascinating cases in the annals of true crime, the Hall-Mills murders. Pompeo investigates a story that fuses religion, betrayal, greed, and adoration, which offers us a complex and tragic portrait of a love story that seemed almost doomed from start.”

Kate Winkler Dawson, author of American Sherlock: Murder, Forensics, and the Birth of American CSI, and host of the hit podcast Tenfold More Wicked

“Pompeo expertly tells the rip-roaring tale of a century-old murder and the ongoing mysteries surrounding the deaths of a minister and his choir-singer lover. Pompeo also shows how the rise of the New York City tabloids kept the scandal alive from one generation to the next. I couldn’t put it down. You won’t be able to either.”
