Overlooked by history, this book reveals one of our nation’s first serial killers in the modern sense of the term, Frederick William Hollman. Coming to America from Brandenburg, Germany in 1883, Hollman settled in Grand Haven, Michigan where he gained a reputation for misogyny and domestic violence. By 1891, Hollman had left his family and developed a hatred for all women that resulted in a series of murders in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. Dubbed “the second H. H. Holmes” by the press, Hollman’s capture in Ford County, Illinois and execution by hanging in 1897 revealed a Dr. Jeckle and Mr. Hyde personality that astounded men of science for years. The condemned man assisted in the construction of his own gallows upon which he posed for a photo for public sale. In his final moments, Hollman cursed those who sentenced him to death and swore he would return to haunt them. Final Doom presents, for the first time, the story of history’s lost serial killer.
