Perhaps because they are so distant from most of our realities, true crime events hold a morbid fascination - the more lurid and unusual, the better. Here, the irresistibly intriguing subject of crime is explored, with murder, misdeeds and criminals from throughout history, fascinating insights into motivations and discussion of the forensic and investigative techniques used to track and convict the perpetrators. With entries ranging from Vlad the Impaler to the Kray Twins and from Jack the Ripper to Bonnie & Clyde, this book has something to interest everyone!
