Hardback, 1st edition, SIGNED. Foreword by Professor Keith Simpson. Determining 'whatdunit' brings together the pathologist, scientist and detective in solving some of the most fascinating mysteries governing the mechanics of murder. The authors have compiled a companion volume to 'The Murderers' Who's Who'. It is an illustrated A to Z of murder, intended to meet the crime reader's interest in understanding the mechanism of homicide, its investigation and detection. Its 140 subject headings are listed alphabetically, with cross-references allowing the reader to pursue a particular interest or to divert to a piece of linking evidence. A substantial Bibliography of some 950 titles allows the serious reader to chart a path through the maze of crime literature in order to follow a particular subject in greater detail. The book is rounded off with a comprehensive name index to ensure its completeness as a reference source. Illus., Bibliog. and Index of Names. 247pp. large 8vo. h/back. THIS COPY HAS THE SPECIAL ILLUSTRATION ON THE DW. depicting blue/red capsules, which had to be withdrawn. The illustrator of the dw. had used his mother's medication for the design which showed the manufacturer's name on the capsules and was deemed dangerous. The box of capsules was subsequently replaced with a box of anonymous looking powder on a new dw. This early dw. is therefore very scarce. With tipped-in label SIGNED by ROBIN ODELL. F. in F. dw. A fairly heavy book which will require additional postage, particularly if shipped overseas.
