All the big ideas from the most criminal of minds, simply explained

"Investigate 100 of the world's most notorious crimes, including the Great Train Robbery, the Lindbergh kidnapping, and the murders of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. 

Were the perpetrators delusional, opportunist or truly evil? Find out what really happened and how cases were solved.

Discover conmen with sheer verve, such as Victor Lustig who ""sold"" the Eiffel Tower to scrap dealers in 1925, adrenaline-fuelled escapes, and mind-bending exploits of pirates, kidnappers, and drug cartels. The Crime Book demystifies malware, cybercrimes, and Ponzi schemes and sets out the terrifying ploys of mass murderers from 16th-century Elizabeth Bathory who drained young girls' blood to the more recent exploits of Rosemary and Fred West. 

Like a virus, crime mutates and adapts. The Crime Book explains how pivotal moments in history opened up new opportunities for criminals, such as the smuggling of alcohol during the American Prohibition era. It also charts developments in justice and forensics including the Innocence Project, which used DNA testing to exonerate wrongly convicted convicts. It examines how the forces of law and order have fought back against crime, explaining ingenious sting operations such as tracking down the jewel thief Bill Mason and the final capture of murderer Ted Bundy. 

With a foreword from bestselling crime author Peter James, The Crime Book is an enthralling introduction to humanity's darker side.
