History's Worst Crimes and the People Who Solved Them free pdf From the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand to the Watergate burglary, the most infamous crimes continue to hold public attention long after they were committed. History's Worst Crimes takes you on a journey through 50 of them, taking in acts of treason, meticulously planned heists, and the most shocking examples of corporate fraud. Step inside the fateful last moments of Gandhi, Lincoln, and King before their assassins struck. Walk the mist-shrouded streets of Victorian London in pursuit of a notorious serial killer. Follow a group of British men as they plan possibly the most audacious robbery in history. And take a look inside Enron: the largest corporate crime of the twentieth century. Some of these cases have been solved, some still await a resolution, and some may remain a mystery forever. All of their stories are recounted here, with fascinating historical context surrounding those involved, from the people who committed the crimes to the individuals charged with bringing the perpetrators to justice.
