Description

This month’s True Detective starts with a shocking case from Oldham which made national headlines when a car crashed on the M26. The passengers in the Volkswagen Polo which had swerved across the road were carrying some sordid cargo. We reveal the events leading up to the crash.

And Jeff Woolf reports from America on the real highs and lows of Mafia women. Their story may read like an episode from the Sopranos, but these women all came to the same conclusion – that there is no glamour in being married to the mob. "Gangsters are full of crap," says Jo Anne Wainwright, and her sentiment is echoed by her fellow molls (or at least the ones that lived to tell the tale).

The Tour Guide To Murder takes a 600-mile journey around Ireland this month with fascinating cases spanning well over a century. The shocking murders of Bridie Gargan and Patricia O’Toole in Dublin, the miscarriage of justice at Newinn in Tipperary, and the mystery of Doolin Strand are pretty well known cases, but the majority of the stories will be less familiar to most readers. There are two Bridget Brennans, a mad woman from Carlow, and a ruthless wife from Glancrough in Kerry. Incidentally we could not find Glancrough on the map.
