Description

This issue is full of fascinating crime stories both past and present from around the globe which gives you an opportunity to compare and contrast cases.

One crime issue which will always result in heated debate is that of capital punishment. Greville Warwick describes how criminals are executed in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, having witnessed three beheadings at close hand. His conclusion is shocking, but is he right?

Read one of Australia’s most famous cases and be prepared to be shocked. It was 1927 and Ronald Griggs arrived with his young wife, Ethel, to become the new parson in the small town of Omeo, Victoria. Not one of socialising, the young Griggs spent most of his time travelling round his parish on his motorbike. Shortly afterwards, after discovering Ethel was pregnant, he moved his mistress in to live with them. That was bad enough, but then his wife died mysteriously…

The final part of our series Most Wanted by John Sanders deals with the ending of the Ku Klux Klan’s reign of terror: For decades bands of hooded men had impossed their will on America’s black population by burning and killing – their racist society grew to a million strong. Crushing them proved to be a daunting task for J. Edgar Hoover: not least because he was getting old.

In most homicide cases the victim knows their killer, but when police were called to the house of Mike Blagg in Grand Junction, Colorado it looked as if his wife and daughter had been attacked and kidnapped. Why would Mike Blagg want them dead? He doted on his wife and daughter, a colleague said "He was definitely a family man." But as the investigation continued, police learned about another side to Mike. Topless massages, "sexual waterworks," and pornography now case into the equation.

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.
