Description
Compulsively fascinating, this oversized album revisits the most notorious crimes in New York City's history. NYPD lieutenant Bernard Whalen, former detective Robert Mladinich, and New York crime reporter Philip Messing re-open more than 80 case files to tell the stories of bombings, heists, frauds, mob hits, and serial murders, dramatically illustrated with hundreds of rarely seen file photos, mug shots, and evidence. See evidence and events like the 1878 Manhattan Bank Robbery (an inside job whose planner died long before the heist was made), the elaborate plot uncovered by America's first female detective (1912), the chilling postcard sent by the Lindbergh baby kidnapper (1932), a cryptic warning from George "Mad Bomber" Metesky (1940), the bank robbery that inspired the film Dog Day Afternoon (1972), the parking ticket that led to the capture of the Son of Sam (1976), and the SUV used in Faisal Shahzad's failed Times Square bombing (2010).

"Fact rivals fiction in this gritty, well-researched collection, an insiders' look at more than 175 years of New York's most infamous crimes. The authors—NYPD Lieutenant Bernand Whalen, crime reporter Philip Messing and retired Detective Robert Mladinich—have detailed a history of many of the city's most notorious and zaniest capers."—Nicholas Pileggi
