Murder Spree

Real Life Stories Of Twentieth Century Crime

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

Twenty-four fascinating real-life cases, grippingly recounted by Damon and Rowan Wilson. Among many others the collection includes the stories of:

Alfred Arthur Rouse, the travelling salesman who was described as having had 'more unsavoury love affairs around the countryside than he could remember', who burned a homeless man to death in his car to fake his own death in an attempt to escape his complicated life.

King Ananda VII of Siam, who died from a gunshot wound to the head aged only twenty. The bedchamber page who found his body shouted that the king had shot himself, but had he really?

Gay Gibson, the attractive, brunette twenty-one year old who may have been murdered but was certainly pushed from a porthole of the SS Durban Castle steaming off the African coast between Cape Town and Southampton.

George Joseph Smith, who drowned three of his brides in their baths by grabbing their ankles and dragging them suddenly under water, thereby forcing water up their noses.

Staff Sergeant Boshears, a US airman based in Britain, acquitted of killing young Jean Constable as he claimed he had strangled her in his sleep.
