I couldn't help it. You get the sense while reading the book that they had similar personalities and perhaps even the same sexual development disorder. Plus the shared locations and a Hal Caine connection.

I'm glad you liked the show.

Loved it.. truth is I have been trying to find a connection between the two, as you said on the show it seems like they SHOULD have known each other....but I have been unable to come up with anything.... yet....not thru lack of trying mind you....
Mudgett/Holmes had quite a fondness for women, and that alone would have been enough to really upset Tumblety and possibly prevent any sort of "friendship" between the two... plus, you know the old saying, you can't con a con man.... well...they would have been able to see right thru each other (I think), but who knows.....I may find something yet

And by the way Adam.. if you check these boards.. great job, book is ordered and can't wait to read it, I have a few of your books and have really enjoyed them ... in fact, kinda wanted to discuss one of them with you....( in my humble opinion) you were a bit unfair to Charles Comiskey (pre deadball era baseball is a passion of mine...thru deadball and of course the 1919 series... would love to discuss it with you if you had the chance....you can get my contact info from Jonathan if you like)

Great podcast. You are right, Jonathan, about the complexity of the story. I listened to it via Audible, so there can be periodic distractions. Going through it a second time for better clarity of the many characters and their roles. Wouldn't bother if the book wasn't so well researched.

This book is the definitive reference on H.H. Holmes.
