On its first publication in 1993, Crime: An Encyclopedia broke new ground with controversial new assessments of major cases such as the 'Dingo' baby or Craig & Bentley, together with startling new evidence on unsolved crimes and penetrating studies of monstrous killers including Peter Sutcliffe and Denis Nilsen. Written in an authoritative and engaging style, Cyriax leaves no stone unturned. Now fully updated to include the latest crimes and criminals, such as Harold Shipman, and with 100 new photographs added, THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF CRIME is the definitive, indispensable and totally engrossing reference book for any crime enthusiast.
