I decided to glean my shelves of all of my true crime books that deal primarily with British historical or sensational crimes. I think my favorites are the one about the New Scotland Yard Black Museum and the investigations during WW2.
Maria Marten and the Red Barn Murder The most sensational crime in the 19th century in England...until the Ripper came along. Thanks to the tabloids
Murder on the Home Front Just like Foyle's War, only true.
The Murders of the Black Museum 1870-1970 Over 600 pages of Scotland Yard investigations.
Myster Reader's Walking Guide: England This is a guide book that takes the tourist to the scene of the crime in mysteries...the location of Morse's cases in Oxford, Caedfal's Shrewsbury, the actual pub where Rumpole drank before he went home to "She Who Must Be Obeyed" Lots of fun.
Murder In High Places I bought this because of Lord Lucan since I was in London when he killed his nanny. So far, he's been spotted everywhere except Wrigley Field.
