Crime files revealed
By Dawn Bond
Crimes Of The Century
A new series of books featuring crimes that shook the world has been released through Haynes Publishing.
Called Crimes Of The Century, the four paperbacks are based on the case files of The Mirror and The People newspapers.
Each book contains accounts of thousands of cases and a profile of the various villains responsible.
Hundreds of questions are asked and answered giving readers a real insight into each case.
Each author casts a forensic eye over cases old and new, known and unfamiliar, making this fascinating and gripping reading.
The books have been published in easy to read print and contain an assortment of photographs.
Serial Killers by JF Derry delves into the chilling psychology of multiple murder and dips into the horrific acts of people like Jack The Ripper, Ian Brady, Peter Sutcliffe and Vlad The Impaler.
Unsolved Crimes by Ian and Claire Welch takes a look at unsolved homicides committed throughout the 20th Century, including the Black Dahlia, Julia Wallace, Peter Falconio, and high profile murders such as Jill Dando, Suzy Lamplugh, Carl Bridgewater and Gennette Tate.
Gangsters, also by the Welches, takes a compelling look at the dark underbelly of society where bootlegging, robbery, crime sprees, threats and corruption were part of everyday life.
Robbery, again by the Welches, delves into the masterminds behind some of the greatest robberies ever committed such as the Great Train Robbery. Each book is priced £7.99 and makes a riveting, macabre read.
