    I would highly recommend 'The Victorian

    Underworld' by Kellow Chesney - full of period detail. It is mainly English [as am I] but hard to find. Mayhew's 'London Underworld' is a classic of course but if you have many hours to spare, plough through!

    I have just discovered a series of books about

    nineteenth century crime in Scotland. I am interested in history and this series is based on court cases and newspaper reports, with some historical background. Murders, riots, grave robbing, theft and all human nature. What I have learned most is that nothing changes except...

    I just got the book "the racketeer" by John

    Grisham from one of mom's friends from work. Is it a good book? I got two books from the same person. The other book is "Never go back" by Lee Child. Are these books worth the read?

    And Hear Of All Of Mankind's Grime

    because people fight rather than might be right let the courts decide the fate of the litigants and let the drama unfold and let our judges be bold

    I'm not much in to murder mysteries,

    however. I'm hoping to wiggle in the Agatha Christie eventually but for now I'm far more in to Lawrence Block and shipping my tire in to classic noir. I took advantage of some Amazon promos and bought a set of Block's Keller series and a book based off of L.A. Noir. Would love...

    I truly love to read different books

    and watch movies and TV programs on crime and the law. After retiring from the bench, my father bought and gave me the entire Dragnet series for my last birthday. This series was presented back in the 50s and 60s. The books and movies I love to read and watch movies are about...

    When I have time, I love reading different

    books about the criminal justice system. I have family members that are employed as attorneys and in other positions in the cjs. I am fascinated about murder mysteries. I also enjoy watching different television series and movies about the same subject.

    Anyone have any recommends on some true crime

    books? I'm on a historical binge lately so I'm thinking 1950's and earlier? Especially ancient crimes and laws.

    but if you want to read something fiction law and crime you can't go wrong reading anything by David Baldacci. He is my favorite writer in this genre. My favorite series of his is the Camel Club Series.
