Riassunto: "The Rough Guide to True Crime" is the complete compilation of crime's most notorious villains, heinous acts and shocking misdemeanours. "The Rough Guide to True Crime" provides an unusually wide coverage of crime's most preposterous occurrences and heinous acts; combining in-depth accounts of the most infamous to the lesser known crimes, from conmen to cybercrime, with 'at-a-glance' fact files throughout. From the Moors murders and Harold Shipman, to the murder of 2pac, this guide illuminates the psychology in play behind the most intriguing crimes in history, from the absurd to the appalling. Written by award winning journalist & author Cathy Scott, features include extensive black and white still photographs, feature profile boxes by forensic expert Professor Louis B Schlesinger explaining the psychology of serial killers, hit men, burglars and various types of murderers. Lesser violations provide a lighter touch, including Paris Hilton's traffic transgressions and Winona Ryder's shoplifting fetish. "The Rough Guide to True Crimes" explores the best of the haunting genre of "True Crime", thrilling the armchair voyeur and amateur criminologist alike.
