Description - The Encyclopedia of Crime by Oliver Cyriax

The Encyclopedia of Crime breaks new ground with controversial assessments of major cases and startling new evidence on unsolved crimes - the deaths of Monroe, Kennedy, Pope John Paul I - and comprehensive studies of monstrous killers including Bundy, Dahmer, Sutcliffe and Nilsen. With entries presented in alphabetical order and written in an authoritative and engaging style, the encyclopedia leaves no stone unturned and is completely up-to-date on the entire gamut of true crime, from assassinations to kidnappings, serial killers to art forgeries. Its entries range from the specific, such as 'Aileen Wuornos', to the more general entries such as 'Severed Ears', and it also includes sections on 'the psychology of crime', 'the history of detection' and 'forensic science'. Author Oliver Cyriax attempts to shed some light on some of crime's biggest enigmas. He asks:What is the best way to crack a safe? How do lethal injections work? And does a head survive decapitation? The Encyclopedia of Crime makes for an unsettling but totally engrossing read, and is an essential addition to the library of any true crime enthusiast.
