About this product
- DescriptionThe Who's Who of British Crime spans the whole twentieth century, and covers an ermous range of crimes and misdemeaurs - by turns appalling, brilliant, gruesome and audacious. All the nation's most famous wrongdoers are here, from the mystery of Lord Lucan to the Great Train Robbery, the Brinks-Mat robbers and Jeffrey Archer. And it's t just the villains; some of the twentieth century's top lawyers and police officers are included for the part they have played in upholding the principles of the law. An unsavoury roll call of the men and women whose misdeeds live on in the national memory, an exploration of some of our most torious unsolved cases and a celebration of the advances made in the fight against crime, this guide tracks the changing face of criminal activity over 100 years.
