Master Detective magazine brings you the world’s best true crime stories – now available in a versatile digital edition you can read anywhere on any device.
Packed full of must-read reports on unspeakable crimes, illustrated with astonishing photos, it’s better than the most thrilling whodunit – because it’s 100% TRUE.
Specialising in real-life stories from the US, the UK and around the world, it brings you the most notorious homicide cases from Victorian times right up to the present. 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.
