Writer Andrew K. F. Amelinckx - award-winning crime reporter, freelance journalist and visual artist will be at the Farmers Market signing copies of his newest historical true crime book, Hudson Valley Murder & Mayhem, due out this summer from The History Press. 

The Hudson Valley has a murky history. In the fall of 1893, Lizzie Halliday left a trail of bodies in her wake, slaughtering two strangers and her husband before stabbing a nurse to death at the asylum housing her. A Jazz Age politician, tired of fighting with his overbearing wife, murdered her and buried the body under the front porch. In 1882, a cantankerous old miner, dubbed the "Austerlitz Cannibal" by the press, chopped up his partner before he himself swung from the end of a rope. Amelinckx dredges up the Hudson Valley's dark past, from Prohibition-era shootouts to unsolved murders, in eleven heart-pounding true stories.

Andrew is is a contributing editor for the magazine Modern Farmer and the former crime and courts reporter for The Berkshire Eagle newspaper.
