Scotland Yard Casebook
Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Scotland Yard Casebook
In 1878 the Criminal Investigation Department replaced Scotland Yard’s corrupt and discredited Detective Branch. In this classic story of the early days of detection, Joan Lock tells the fascinating story of the creation of the CID, the scandal which preceded it, and the successes and failures of the new organization, including early cases such as the four murders by Ernest Southey, the ferocious outbreak of dockland killings in 1869 and the more familiar Bravo, Neill Cream and Jack the Ripper crimes.She describes Scotland Yard’s gradual, if sometimes tardy, acceptance of identification and communication aids such as photography, the telegraph, telephone, Bertillon’s anthropometric measurements and the fingerprint system.First World War spy and Dear John jealousy murders were followed by Roaring Twenties’ swindles and the arrival of motor car bandits — which in turn led to the formation of the Flying Squad and the adoption of mobile wireless telegraphy. The introduction of women detectives is also discussed and the difficulties they experienced in establishing their place in a male dominated force.Joan Lock closes the gap between the academic police historian and the writer of popular true crime, making this book a fascinating read for crime experts and the general reader alike.‘Everyone with an interest in police history will know that Joan Lock has written a series of books notable for their perspicacity. and immaculate research. Scotland Yard Casebook is a new peak in her career, a fascinating account of the great and not-so-great detectives of a golden age. She has examined the official case files and put together a history told through the careers of policemen and giving a professional view of such dramatic events as the Turf Fraud Scandal, the Dynamite Campaign, the Jack the Ripper murders and the Anarchist outrages — side by side with stories previously ignored by historians, yet often crucial to the development of the CID. With a style that is authoritative, dispassionate and witty, Joan Lock has delivered a book of lasting importance.’ – Peter LoveseyA former nurse and policewoman, Joan Lock is the author of eleven non-fiction police/crime books, including three on Scotland Yard’s First detectives. As well as writing short stories and radio plays she is also an authority on the history of the British women police officers. Endeavour Press is the UK’s leading independent publisher of digital books.
