Publisher's Summary

Fascinating, frightening or just plain frustrating? These eight gripping stories show detective work as it really is - and sometimes truth can be stranger than fiction. Hear about the ghostly dream that helped to solve a baffling murder mystery, some clever detectives' tricks that led to the conviction of the 'Laurel and Hardy' jewel thieves, and the crafty blackmailer who nearly got away with the perfect crime.

With facts on fingerprinting, police files and the Flying Squad, True Detective Stories brings you face to face with real-life detectives, and some sinister cases it is their job to solve.

Excellent, Interesting, and Informative

I used to listen to this audio book on tape when I was younger. I was delighted to find it on Audible. The stories are really interesting and very well told. The author has clearly done his research and has put it together well. The reader is very good. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in what detectives really do. These stories are just as good as the ones other authors create.
