The Sherlock Holmes of Saint Louis: Saint Louis Chief of Detectives William Desmond

Ken Zimmerman

Who captured members of the Wild Bunch? Solved a nationally known 1893 train robbery? Who helped to capture H.H. Holmes, America's first serial killer?

Not a Western sheriff nor a Pinkerton agent. Chief William Desmond commanded the largest detective force west of the Mississippi River.

The St. Louis Chief of Detectives from 1890 to 1907 personally solved hundreds of crimes and protected fair goers to St. Louis' 1904 World's Fair.

Learn the true story of one of America's greatest detectives.
