Description

This months True Detective underlines, more than usual, that there’s nothing new under the sun when it comes to crime.

The remarkable story in which a killer uses a trick so old that it must have seemed corny even then, nearly 100 years ago. And yet he almost got away with the murder.

Also the latest part of ‘Murder Was My Business’ the fascinating account of how ace crime reporter Ducan Webb stayed at the forfront of murder investigations in the 1940’s and 50’s. His secret, quite simply, was that sleuthing was to him more than a job – it was his whole life. His habit of hanging around the haunts of known lowlifes – immersing himself into the very underworld it was his job to expose – paid dividends time and again, and never more so than in the case of Neville Heath and his victim Margery Gardner.

There’s nothing new, either, in hiding behind worship – either god-fearing or satanic – as an excuse for killing. Sadly a pair of recent cases serves to prompt the question
"Are we going back to the dark ages?" It comes too late to save young Terrance Cottrell, victim of an exorcism gone wrong, or the multiple victims of a group of Italian devil-worshippers. But what good is history unless we can learn from it?

Thats the theme that runs through True Detective, to study the most fascinating crimes of the past and present… to applaud the tireless efforts of law-enforcement officers around the world…and to learn the lessons of history in the hope that one day we may live in a world free of crime.
