This is a collectors coffee table book with each case profiled on two pages each, so makes for easy reading. Has many famous and infamous murders from Gotti to the Leopold and Loeb boys who killed a young boy just to see if they could get away with it. Also has the Lindburg baby with some added info I wasn't even aware of and I'm an avid true crime reader. So I was plesently surprised. Would make a great gift for true crime buffs.
