Infamous gangsters to deadly housewives

This is a fascinating collection of true crime stories. Essential reading for anyone interested in crime and the perpetrators of crime. Our booklist includes: Behind Bars, by Anna Leask, gives an insight into the inmates in New Zealand prisons; The Black Widow, the New Zealand suburban housewife who callously staged her husband’s death as a suicide; and Art thieves, Fakers & Fraudsters, reveals the secret criminal activity of the New Zealand art world. No true crime booklist would be complete without a title featuring the lives of the Kray Twins and one about the notorious Mafia. A truly horrifying but gripping collection of books.
