The Murder Room: In which three of the greatest detectives use forensic science to solve the world's most perplexing cold cases by Michael Capuzzo
Three of the world's greatest detectives - a renowned former FBI agent, a forensic sculptor and an eccentric profiler known as 'the living Sherlock Holmes' - were distraught at the growing tide of unsolved murders. And so William Fleisher, Frank Bender and Richard Walter pledged themselves to a quest for justice . . . They invited the finest collection of forensic minds ever assembled, drawn from five continents, to bring the coldest killers in the world to account. Named after the first detective - Eugene Francois Vidocq - the Vidocq Society meets monthly to solve a cold case. The Murder Room paints a chilling picture as the three partners travel far and wide to hunt - among countless others - the ruthless killers of a millionaire's son, a serial killer who carves off faces, and a child killer enjoying fifty years of freedom and dark fantasy. Bestselling author Michael Capuzzo brings to life a world of dazzling forensic science, evil as old as the Bible and at its centre a group of passionate detectives - inspired by their own wounded hearts to make a stand for truth, goodness and justice in a world gone mad.
