Guild Publishing, London, 1986. Book condition: Good. Minimal wear, pages a little tanned. Dust jacket: very good. Unclipped and with minimal edge wear. 284 pages. The classic murder is the one thing that satisfies us as a complete drama. It can be tragic or comic, it may horrify or baffles. It often raises important legal or moral issues. Above all it encapsulates time and place and personality in a self-contained story. Robert Meadley has drawn upon his own extensive collection to bring together the most fascinating true murder cases as described by the genre's most distinguished writers, including William roughead, Edmund Pearson, H. B. Irving and William Bolitho, with a postscript by De Quincey himself, in an entertaining volume.
