Local Author Reports on Union Station Massacre
July 08, 2013
Have you ever gone to Union Station and poked a finger in the bullet holes left after the infamous shoot out of 1933? They’re still there! The eerie thrill of seeing them conjures legends and tall tales that I’ve heard since I was a little girl. Wouldn’t you like to know what really happened?
Robert Unger’s superb book, The Union Station Massacre, will give you the straight scoop. The author states in the book’s preface, "This book is fact… It is not creative nonfiction; it does not blend knowledge with speculation." His primary source? Twenty thousand pages of FBI files.
In an interview with the University News, Jonathan Rand, a colleague of Dr. Unger’s at the University of Missouri Kansas City, said this about the author and his book:
"Bob’s Pulitzer Prize-winning résumé in daily newspapers speaks for itself. His reporting skills were never more impressive than when he wrote the book reconstructing the Union Station massacre…."
In Robert Unger’s hand, the facts of the case read like a best-selling thriller. Check out, The Union Station Massacre.
