Summary
Jack the Ripper and the Zodiac Killer. The kidnapping of little Madeleine McCann. The £22 million robbery of the British Bank in Beirut. What all these have in common is they're cold cases: investigators have closed the file because they're out of leads. Famous Cold Cases presents more than 50 of these unsolved or recently solved crimes in a dossier format, with examples arranged chronologically and with featured boxes. Each chapter focuses on a specific criminal activity, from murder and political assassinations to kidnapping, robbery, and fraud. Notorious cases include the murder of JonBenét Ramsey, the search for Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa, the spectacular escape of hijacker D. B. Cooper, the assassination of Pakistani leader Benazir Bhutto, and the poisoning of communist defector Alexander Litvinenko in London. This engrossing book invites you to review each case, analyze the evidence, and try to figure out the most likely culprit
