Real life crimes, famous and forgotten, re-examined by leading crime writers

A superb collection of brand new and original essays about famous and obscure real life crimes, Truly Criminal showcases a group of highly regarded, award-winning writers who all share a special passion for crime. Among these real-life crimes, famous and forgotten, are such notorious cases as Samuel Herbert Dougal, the Moat Farm murderer; George Joseph Smith, the Brides in the Bath killer; and Dr. Hawley Harvey Crippen, one of the most infamous killers in British history. Featuring a dazzling list of contributors, including leading crime novelists Peter Lovesey, Andrew Taylor, and Catherine Aird, as well as 2013 CWA Crime Non-Fiction Dagger winner Paul French; a bonus essay by the late great Margery Allingham about the controversial William Herbert Wallace case has also been rediscovered. With a foreword by international bestselling writer Peter James, this collection will thrill lovers of true-crime writing.
