MEDIA REVIEWS
For a wide-ranging take on true crime illustrated with infographics, The Crime Book is a bloody, engrossing history of criminology, from bandits and serial killers to 21st century cyber predators. Famous cases include Jack The Ripper, the Black Dahlia murder and Bonnie and Clyde. * Crime Scene *
Like other Dorling Kindersley books, the layout is what jumps out at you ... we think it will make a great gift for anyone who loves crime fiction. It seems a perfect reference tool for authors who need a little inspiration or who want to ground their work with a few facts from the world of true crime ... Crime fiction author Peter James adds the cherry on top with his foreword. * Crime Fiction Lover *
From the 1671 attempt to steal the Crown Jewels to the 2015 Hatton Garden heist, and taking in Burke and Hare, Bonnie and Clyde and the Bandit Queen of Uttar Pradesh, The Crime Book by Dorling Kindersley is an exhaustively researched and lavishly illustrated treasure-trove of malfeasance through the ages and around the world. * The Sunday Times and The Times Crime Club *
