Description

Famous New Zealand Murders (Hard Cover) by D. G. Dyne. 'The crime of murder has had a compelling attraction for writers and readers, since stories were first written. Most of the best detective deal with murder, for it is the most final and horrible of crimes. In fiction, whether the detective be a Victorian drug-addict, a pipe-smoking Frenchman, a moustached Belgian, or a public-school policeman, the outcome in general terms is predictable. In real life this is not always so, and even when a case is finally finished there is sometimes left a nagging doubt if justice has been done. The fifteen cases dealt with in this book represent some of the most interesting in the history of capital crime in New Zealand between 1847 and 1941. All of them have something of a distinctive New Zealand flavour.' The book has light to medium general wear but remains tight and bright. Previous owners name or inscription on inside front page.
