    Comments about True Crime:

    The huge amount of text on each page and the poor selection of font, and color of font, made it extremely difficult to read. And I have 20:20 vision.

    For such an amazing collection of content they spoilt it.

    Comment on this review

    From 1800-1860 two pages are devoted to each decade; from 1861-2004 two pages per year; and from 2005 onwards, two spreads per year, with special spreads on notorious cases/criminals positioned throughout.
