This book contains some fantastic photographs of criminals over the years, which is really useful in putting a face to name you might have heard of. Some brilliant photo's which really capture the grittiness and horror of crime. This book does exactly what it tells you it is going to, no more, no less. ( )

This was a very interesting way to present a True Crime compendium. The information wasn't very thorough, as can be expected in a volume of this size. However, it was good to be able to put faces to a few well-known names. This book would be a good jumping off point for those interested in true crime. ( )

OK photography from the late 1800s to modern day. Weegee dominates, and even though there are a lot of imagery, most pictures aren't very well printed and I can think of more interesting imagery to swap a lot of the existing pictures for; still, at the low price I bought it for and for the value of having a few excellent, harrowing and haunting pictures - e.g. the one of Lesley Ann Downey's mother staring over the Saddleworth moor as the police searches for her daughter - it's definitely a worthwhile read and a good buy.
