The Crime Museum Uncovered: Inside Scotland Yard's Special Collection
'Entertaining and chilling' - The Telegraph
'this is a beautifully designed book. It’s a good slab of a coffee-table book for its £12.99, and is visually striking.' - criminalhistorian.com
This book accompanies the Museum of London's exhibition of never-before-seen-objects from the Metropolitan Police's Crime Museum. Using original evidence from this extraordinary collection, The Crime Museum Uncovered unlocks real-life case files to take the reader on an uneasy journey through some of the UK's most notorious crimes from Dr Crippen to the Krays, the Great Train Robbery to the Millennium Dome diamond heist.
The book provides a fascinating insight into the changing nature of crime and advances in detection over the last 140 years, as well as the challenges faced in policing London.
