Fifty of the murders, for which there are exhibits, are explored in details in this compelling book. The museum is closed to the public, but author Gordon Honeycombe was given privileged access to its darkest secrets.
His book spans a hundred years of murder and manslaughter and reveals the true facts behind some of the country's most notorious murder cases, including Jack the Ripper, Dr Crippen and the Krays.
This is the ultimate guide to the most incredible crimes ever committed, featuring contemporary photographs never seen outside Scotland Yard.
