New Scotland Yard, the headquarters of London's Metropolitan Police, houses a unique collection of exhibits, photographs and other items connected with some of the most famous crimes of the last century. For years it was known as the Black Museum and has recently been renamed the Crime Museum. Fifty of the murders, for which there are exhibits, are explored in details in this compelling book. The museum is closed to the public, but author Gordon Honeycombe was given privileged access to its darkest secrets. His book spans a hundred years of murder and manslaughter and reveals the true facts behind some of the country's most notorious murder cases, including Jack the Ripper, Dr Crippen and the Krays. This is the ultimate guide to the most incredible crimes ever committed, featuring contemporary photographs never seen outside Scotland Yard.
