Crimestopper: An Unstoppable Read
on 6 November 2012
Anyone who enjoys crime fiction will find Crimestopper a compulsive read; why read fiction when real life is so often more entertaining? Within this entirely engaging book lies a series of fascinating anecdotes covering crime and policing in Scotland from the 1960s to the 1990s. Always interesting, often humorous and moving, this book gives an insightful account of real life crime from the ordinary to the macabre. One story leads you to the next on a pathway of tales and stories of an often challenging and unpleasant job. Delivered with empathy and humour, we are given a glimpse of life most of us have never encountered. From the famous serial killer Bible John to the prostitutes of Glasgow; from a mysterious kidnapping to a burglar's baby accomplice and so very much more,it is so much more than just another crime read.
