GUNFIRE – GRAFFITI: Overlooked Gun Crime in the UK
Matt Seiber with a preface by Nick Ross (Waterside Press P/B 2012)
Peer reviewed. As featured on TV, radio and in the press: a remarkable unique study of the abuse of handguns, rifles (including high-velocity rifles), shotguns and air-weapons in the UK.
Former HM Royal Marines ‘Green Beret’ Commando, Seiber’s chapter: ‘Thoughts on High Profile Cases: Gun Control Network/ Michael Ryan/Thomas Hamilton/ Columbine High School Colorado/Derrick Bird’ is insightful, indeed chilling.
A highly-recommended, comprehensive read for every civilian owning a firearm/s of any type; a book that the NRA, guns shop owners and police should endorse and promote. A must-have for all those involved with firearms and ballistics.
THE BRITISH EXECUTION
Stephen Banks (Shire Library P/B 2013)
Peer reviewed. Stephen Banks is an Associate Professor and Director of the Forum for Legal and Historical Research at the University of Reading. He also wrote Duels and Duelling for Shire Library.
Capital punishment is a highly-controversial subject. For those with an interest in capital punishment this compact, historical study, with illustrations, is well worth having in your true crime library.
THE MURDERER’S WHO’S WHO, MURDER WHEREABOUTS and MURDER WHAT DUNIT.
Peer reviewed. Robin ‘Bob’ Odell is one of the UK’s leading true crime writers and historians. This trilogy is amongst the most sought-after reads for anyone interested in murder most foul.
Robin often wrote with the doyen of true crime, the legendary J.H.H. Gaute. His book Landmarks in 20th Century Murder is compelling.
Other books by Odell are:
Jack the Ripper in Fact and Fiction
Exhumation of a Murder
Lady Killers (with H.H.H. Gaute)
Jack the Ripper: Summing up and Verdict (with Colin Wilson)
Dad help Me Please (with Christopher Berry-Dee)
