Very poorly written and riddled with inaccuracies throughout. Writer has not researched the cases but simply relied on information from unreliable sources such as Wikipedia and other on-line web sites or on-line news reports. Whilst the short story style of this book does not allow the writer to go into a lot of detail it is important that what details are given be factual and correct In reality this is simply a collection of poor information obtained from unreliable sources. Two examples I can give (and there are many others throughout this book) are the article related to David and Catherine Birnie is almost entirely false (e.g. the victim who was able to get away DID NOT run to a Police Station) and the article on Fred and Rose West also is highly innacurate. It suggests that the "appropriate adult" that was nominated to sit in on interviews with Fred West was there to give him legal advice or assistance. That is totally incorrect and the appropriate adult's role is one to ensure the interviews are conducted in a fair manner and the suspect is not seen to be placed under unfair duress. Their role is similar to parents/guardians role when minors are questioned. To simply use a line stating they would be illegal in the USA because they are not lawyers or attorneys highlights how little research has been carried out for this book. Hard to recommend and unfortunately I also purchased Vols 2 & 3 at the same time.
