Summary

Presents a history of crime and criminology from pirates and highwaymen to 21st century cyber predators.

From Jack the Ripper to the modern day drug cartels, discover the most notorious crimes and criminals in history.

How did Jack the Ripper acquire his grisly name? Who "sold" the Eiffel Tower? How did the Hatton Garden burglars pull off their audacious heist? This book answers these questions and more by exploring over 100 of the world's most notorious cons, heists, and murders.

Authoritative and engaging, this book is packed with arresting graphics and compelling text, taking a fresh look at true crime and the history of criminology. From pirates and highwaymen to serial killers and the cyber predators of the 21st century, each entry offers an insight into the justice system as well as the criminal mind.

NOTE: Contains detailed, in-depth discussion of grisly crimes such as serial killings and case studies such as the Fred West murders, Jack the Ripper etc.
