OFFICIAL DETECTIVE OMNIBUS

From the files of the leading fact detective magazine, Official Detective Stories, this collection of contemporary crime, actual and authentic save for the substitution of names and locales. Of a blind man's death under a subway train; of the sordid love killing in an Indiana canyon; of a chopper gang's robbery of a jewel store; of a proxy poisoning and a numbers racket; of Philadelphia's castration crimes; of the Indianapolis heisters who used a hearse as a getaway car; of a telephone killer's identification; of New York's recent camera- shotgun subway shooting; of the confessions of a gun moll, etc. etc. These and others provide some fairly sensational, sanguinary true crime records, closer to the tabloid than the classical.
