Lew Irwin’s “Deadly Times” chronicles a dark period of American history that many know little about. Between the years of 1907-1911 more than 200 bombings were carried out in the United States.

On October 1, 1910, the Los Angeles Times building was bombed killing at least 20 employees, a crime Irwin calls the worst ever committed in California. In “Deadly Times,” Irwin examines the reasons for the bombings and the history of this violent era as he reports on this little-known piece of California history.
