Hardback. The vast majority of murder cases are solved fairly quickly, their perpetrators flushed out by police and firmly taken into custody. But over the years, there have been cases when the police have been baffled. With some, police have no idea who the killer might be. In others, the police "know," but have been unable to amass enough evidence to send the culprit to prison. In this book the authors describe these cases that trouble the police all over America. The ones they cannot forget. The ones where the guilty have beaten the 'rap'. The ones where the killer's identity is not known. Who pulled the trigger? Plunged the knife? Tightened the strangler's knot? Each chapter documents an unsolved homicide that has left a murderer free. In many instances substantial rewards have been posted, but remain unclaimed. Featuring amongst others : Candy heiress Helen Brach, missing and presumed dead - $250,000 reward. Oil company executive Charles Merriam, shot dead through the front door of his home - $100,000 reward. Illinois legislator Clem Graver, abducted kicking and screaming by men in a car outside his home - $100,000 reward. US Secret Service agent Julie Cross, the first female agent killed in the line of duty - 100,000 reward. These cases and 53 others are chronicled. Illus., Reward Information + Index. 385pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Nr. F. in nr. f. dw. A fairly heavy book which may require additional postage.
