The Scotland Yard Files

Books, Opinion Add comments

This morning I was on the local library when I came across a copy of The Scotland Yard Files by Alan Moss and Keith Skinner. It features numerous cases from the files of the yard, as well as a history of the establishment and the developments in crime detection.

There is a large chapter on Jack the Ripper, covering 24 pages, as well as a wonderful photo of Sir Charles Warren which is apprantly “rare” and dated 1886-8.

Other chapters included are Dr. Crippen, DNA, Identity Parades, Press and TV Appeals, Ballistics, Facial Reconstruction, and much much more.

It’s RRP is £19.99, although Amazon has quite a few that are much less.
The book runs at 191 pages, features an index, bibliography and list of Scotland Yard files used in the writing of the book. A foreword by Sir Ian Blair is also included.
