This book has been written by a collaboration of leading journalists from Britain's most influential newspaper, the Daily Mail, and is illustrated with more than 900 photos – most of which have never before been seen – drawn from that paper's exclusive archive.
This absorbing account of murder, robbery, assassination, kidnapping and mayhem covers 200 of the most sensational and notorious cases from 1900 to the present day, and includes many original newspaper cuttings giving dramatic first-hand accounts.
Some of the major crimes and mysteries included are The Great Train Robbery, The Acid Bath Murders, Brinks-Matt Robbery and the Disappearance of the Baby at Ayres Rock.
The fascinating but diabolical cast of characters includes Richard Hauptmann, John Wayne Gacy, John Gotti, Ian Brady, Myra Hindley, Buster Edwards, Dr. Crippen, Indonesia's Suharto, Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka, Derek Bentley, Timothy McVeigh, Bonnie & Clyde, Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer and Al Capone.
