    A really good read. It details landmark cases in Britain such as the first or last people to be convicted under particular laws, new ways of policing or new methods of using science to convict. There's even a case of a doctor who gave his old patients lethal injections and doctored their wills.... It's just not the one you think it is! I can recommend this to those who love true crime.
