Sinopsis

An essential guide to criminology, exploring the most infamous cases of all time, from serial killers to mob hits to war crimes and more.

From Jack the Ripper to Jeffrey Dahmer, The Crime Book is a complete study of international true crime history that unpacks the shocking stories through infographics and in-depth research that lays out every key fact and detail. Examine the science, psychology, and sociology of criminal behavior, and read profiles of villains, victims, and detectives. See each clue and follow the investigation from start to finish, and study the police and detective work of each case.

Find out how pirates, the Japanese yakuza, Chinese triads, and modern drug cartels operate around the world. Dive deep into the Black Dahlia murder investigation and follow other high-profile cases, including Lizzie Borden with her ax and the Patty Hearst kidnapping.

Learn how media coverage changed through history, from the tragic assassination of President Abraham Lincoln to romanticizing Bonnie and Clyde's doomed fate to the kidnapping and murder of Charles Lindbergh's baby, which is considered the first international crime tabloid story.

The Crime Book is a complete compendium for crime aficionados to add to their collection.

Foreword writer and consultant Cathy Scott is a Los Angeles Times best-selling author, and an established crime writer and investigative journalist for The New York Times and Reuters. Best known for writing The Killing of Tupac Shakur and The Murder of Biggie Smalls, she has written extensively about street gangs and organized crime, including mob daughter Susan Berman in Murder of a Mafia Daughter, and drug kingpin "Freeway" Rick Ross.
