Television trials and celebrity killers, suicide doctors and frozen heads, schoolkids with guns and infanticidal mums, dark conspiracies and political atrocities – when Nick Wood [aka Nick Hazlewood] thought about the USA, he thought of a country where death was becoming a national pastime, a bizarre obsession and, in some cases, a spectator sport. He went to see whether it was all true.
This is Wood’s account of his journey along a route of carnage and destruction from Los Angeles to New York, with the Grim Reaper as his guide and travelling companion.
His trip takes him to murder scenes in Colorado, Kansas and the Carolinas, and to bombings, assassinations and hellfire infernos in Oklahoma, Texas and Tennessee. Whether taking a hearse in Beverly Hills to visit the death spots of the stars, doing Dallas in a presidential limo, visiting the world’s largest cryogenics facility or calling in on Death Row, this is a look at America’s infatuation with all things mortal.
