University of Kentucky law professor Richard H. Underwood has published CrimeSong: True Crime Stories From Southern Murder Ballads (Shadelandhouse Modern Press, 2016). The book explores the real life events behind 24 Southern murder ballads. Professor Underwood developed the book from an article he wrote some years ago with research assistance from a law librarian who worked at the University of Kentucky, and to whom he has dedicated the book.

Copies are available directly from the publisher.  More about the book here from the UKy College of Law website.
