As the world goes about its daily business, criminals and cops engage in a deadly battle of wits. This book delves into the crimes that police have to deal with day after day. Murderers, hitmen, kidnappers, drug dealers - they all feature in this collection of true crime stories. Take the drug dealer who walked out of a restaurant bragging that he's killed a man - unaware that his fellow diner was an undercover policeman. Or the young mother, whose death was written off as suicide, but which subsequent investigation proved to be something much more sinister.
