Description

From Germany the couple who became Vampire Killers.

Part 1 in the series ‘These Women Were Deadly’. The story of Evelyn Dick.
In this astonishing case Evelyn kept human bones in her attic next to her baby’s corpse that was encased in cement. She was said to be a moron with the mind of a child. So how did she completely baffle the investigating detectives?

"It’s easier to kill the bitch"
Kenneth Stahl and his wife Carolyn were found slumped in their car on the Ortega Highway, in California. They had been shot at point-blank range but had not been robbed. Why would anyone want to shoot the church-going, happily-married couple?

Secrets of the gangster years.
The booze racket. In 1930 New York alone had 32,000 speakeasies – one for every cab on the street – and each one was a potential gold mine, provided it had enough bootleg to sell…

Guilty beyond a reasonable doubt?
Would a happily married man with a young child hide the clothes of a girl he had murdered in his house where they could be found, then bury her body near his family’s holiday home? "No," many said, but what is your verdict, guilty or not guilty?

You the detective.
Riddle of the woman buried twice.
There are few clues to this murder puzzle, but a good sleuth may spot a lead before Detective Callahan and his team did.

Is the Black Dahlia mystery solved at last?
Orgies, perversions, under-age sex, ritualised killing, were according to Steve Hodel, all part of the life of the Black Dahlia murderer. But more staggering than that is the man he names as the perpetrator – his own father.

Please note – Many of the cases in the American issue of True Detective have already been published in True Detective, True Crime, Master Detective & Murder Most Foul.
