Who killed Freddie Mills? Was the ex-champion boxer victim of a gangland hit, or a suicidal serial killer,
Master Detective April 2008
One thing we recognise at MD is the value of true expertise – and so we welcome crime writer James Morton to the pages of the magazine. The acknowledged authority on UK gangland unearths the facts about the strange death of boxer Freddie Mills in an exclusive report beginning on page 10. We’re big fans of Mr. Morton’s work, so we’re keen to know what you think of this, his first piece for us. Write to MD Viewpoint.
This month also offers two opportunities for our sharp-witted readers to participate in cases. Begin by sharpening your detective skills and see if you can out-guess the police with Judith’s Costly Secret Solved Her Murder.
Then turn your attention to the first in a new series of unsolved cases. Surely someone, perhaps one of our readers out there, must know who killed the “gentle giant” cab driver at Mow Cop, Staffordshire? If so get in touch!
