Last summer I found a great true crime book for my classroom library.  It was a huge hit.  Unfortunately, two weeks before school ended, it walked off.  I would like to buy two more copies of the book (as it was so popular), but I don't have a title or author.  I'm hoping someone here will be able to help.

When you open the book, it looks like you are looking at a newspaper.  All of the cases are shown in this format.  It includes pictures and eye-catching headlines.  Does anyone have an idea what the title of this book is or who the author is?  Thank you in advance.

Sorry..not me..sounds like an anthology of true crime and I don't read those...hope someone here can help..but we have a pretty small posting group of true crime readers.  If you post in the regular forum I bet someone will be able to help you.  There is some web page where you can go and describe a book and people will help you find it..but I don't know what it is called.

I have never come across this book.  Maybe you should try the search engine.  That might help.  Good luck!

I have this book and it is by Martin Fido and it's called True Crime The infamous villains of modern history and their hideous crimes.

This is a great book and easy and fast to read.
