In its pages you might find the latest murder case from the UK courts, a fascinating gangster saga from the 1930s, a French crime of passion from the 1970s and a crazed cannibal killer from the former Soviet Union. All this plus regular features such as European Crime Report, US Executions – The Forgotten Decade, and They Came To Watch The Hanging.
