Hardback. Police detectives and other law enforcement agents approach each new case carefully, knowing that not every crime - whether murder, disappearance, robbery, or other transgression of the law - can be solved. By carefully collecting and examining evidence, rigorously interrogating suspects, and following up every lead with smart sleuthing, investigators are able to solve most crimes, even some that first appear to be extremely mysterious and troubling. However, true crime readers, crime buffs, students, and readers interested in the history of law enforcement and criminal investigations know that some cases stump the experts. Here, the author details more than 540 of the most baffling cases of the previous two centuries from around the world. This fascinating resource delves into legendary unsolved crimes as well as many disturbing cases from the 19th and 20th centuries that have continued to spark interest among crime writers, professional investigators, and amateur crime sleuths. Entries provide an overview of the crime, the parties involved, the evidence gathered, and the leading theories of law enforcement. Topics such as missing persons are also discussed. Focusing on cases involving prominent figures (Jimmy Hoffa) and mysterious scenarios (the "Zodiac" Killer) as well as those with a major social impact (the Tylenol Murders), the book offers comprehensive and valuable coverage. Also includes amongst others: Elizabeth Ann Short ("Black Dahlia"), Chandra Levy, Death Angels cult, Geneva Ellroy, Jack the Ripper, the Lindbergh kidnapping, Marilyn Monroe, JonBenet Ramsey plus much more. Written in an accessible A-to-Z format and enhanced by more than 50 photographs + Bibliog. and Index. 340pp. 4to h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Pictorial covers dw. not required. F. A heavy book which will require additional postage if shipped overseas.
