The Mammoth Book of Illustrated True Crime A Photographic History by Colin Wilson

This vast photographic record of the annals of crime features some of the 20th century's most infamous criminals and shocking crimes. Packed with more than 400 photographs, it covers everything from arson, cannibalism, con men and headless corpses, to mass murderers, sabotage, victims and vital clues. Researched in collaboration with the Hulton Getty Picture Library, The Mammoth Book of Illustrated Crime forms a compelling line-up from the criminal side of human history. Among the subjects featured are: Incriminating evidence, such as killer Dr Marcel Patiot's stash of his 47 victims' clothing; Moments of madness, including the bungled Dome diamond heist; Attempted murder, with agents diving to protect Reagan from the 1981 assassination attempt; The heavy hand of justice, as a body reels from the bullets of the French firing squad
