Master Detective  |  Master Detective May 2018  


In this month’s MD we present the first part of the not-to-be-missed definitive story of the notorious 1969 Manson Murders. Cult leader Charles Manson – who died in November 2017 aged 83 and whose funeral was held in March – inspired his “Family” to carry out two of America’s most infamous slayings. But who was Manson? How did he manage to hold such power over his disciples? And why did he order them to kill?

All-Out War With The Mafia concludes this issue with a look at the dramatic events of the early 1990s when the campaign against the Corleonosi began to achieve results. Don’t miss it.

Finally, a word on this issue’s Scottish classic, Edinburgh’s Jekyll And Hyde Killer, in which the real-life character who inspired Robert Louis Stevenson’s story demonstrates his dark side...


Highlights this issue include:

* The Manson Massacres – Part One
* European Crime Report
* Scotland’s Classic Cases: Edinburgh’s Jekyll And Hyde Killer
* All-Out War With The Mafia – Part Three
* Murder In Your Village: Murder Motive Was A “Whore” Named Virtue
* They Came To Watch The Hanging: Evil Stepmother Was Last Woman Hanged In Public
* MD Forum: When The Cold War Heated Up
* US Executions – The Forgotten Decade: Three Years In The Shadow Of The Gallows
* Murder Scene Was “Like Hannibal Lecter’s Abattoir”
