Real Hard Cases : True Crime from the Streets, Paperback

Real Hard Cases : True Crime from the Streets Paperback



This book presents more hard hitting cases from the authors of "Glasgow Crimefighter".

As legendary Glasgow detective Les Brown re-investigates cases from Stratford in east London to Wick, via Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Ayrshire and Renfrewshire, he finds that, often, the official police line doesn't quite add up...The body of a young electrician is dragged from a harbour.

The police say the death was an accident, but a mysterious man confesses to murder.

What is the truth? A young Scotsman is found dead on the pavement near to a multi-story London car park.

Did he jump or was he pushed? Then there's the rape and strangling of 14-year-old Pamela Hastie and the killing of 11-year-old Tracy Waters...two of the most horrific and puzzling cases in West of Scotland crime. And the mystery of 12-year-old Moira Anderson's death in Coatbridge, the strange case of rape at a holiday camp, and the disturbing facts of a series of unsolved murders of street prostitutes. These and many more Real Hard Cases are re-opened by Les Brown, in this intriguing new book co-written with Robert Jeffrey, author of a best-selling string of true crime titles, including "Glasgow's Hard Men", "Gangland Glasgow" and "Glasgow's Godfather".
