Hardback. SIGNED. A unique record of crime in the 20th-century: a killing for every day of the year. The earliest is the shooting of a Yorkshire policeman in 1900, the most recent the suffocation of a middle-aged accountant in early 1996; the 366 entries in James Morton's diary of death remorselessly chart the modern history of one of man's most primitive and powerful instincts. From the convicted wife-murderer whose failed suicide attempt saved him from the gallows to the acquittal of a killer after a 'sleepwalking' defence, the eccentricities of legal history provide some of the book's more intriguing revelations, while many cases remain unsolved to this day. With Bibliog. 501pp. lge. 8vo. h/back. With the usual lightly browned pp. o/w Nr. F. in F. dw. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. A fairly heavy book which will require additional postage if shipped overseas.
