This one is really a delight. Great big trade paperback full of splashy photos accenting the newspaper-format look of each page. Like a gigantic clippings scrapbook, bulging with crimes -- the tall and the small.

This is a very interesting chronicle of true crime. Takes place from the 17th century to the late 20th century.
