The Rough Guide to True Crime

eBook

The Rough Guide to True Crime is the complete compilation of crime's most notorious villains, heinous acts and shocking misdemeanors. The Rough Guide to True Crime in a new ePub format provides an unusually wide coverage of crime's most appalling occurrences; combining in-depth accounts of the most infamous to the lesser known crimes, from conmen to cyber crime, with 'at-a-glance' fact files throughout. From the Moors murders and Harold Shipman, to the murder of Tupac, this guide illuminates the psychology in play behind the most intriguing crimes in history, from the absurd to the appalling. Written by award-winning journalist and author Cathy Scott, the book features extensive black and white still photographs and profile boxes by forensic expert Professor Louis B. Schlesinger explaining the psychology of serial killers, hit men, burglars and various types of murderers. Lesser violations provide a lighter touch, including Paris Hilton's traffic transgressions and Winona Ryder's shoplifting fetish.

The Rough Guide to True Crime explores the best of the haunting genre of True Crime, thrilling the armchair voyeur and amateur criminologist alike.
