They are crimes that will shock and disturb. In World’s Most Chilling Crimes, author John Kerr details some of the most infamous cases involving missing children. From the kidnapping and ransom of the Lindbergh baby, in a case dubbed ‘The Crime of the Century’. To the tragedy of young Madeleine McCann, taken from a hotel room in a Portuguese resort. To a House of Horrors in Cleveland that shocked and horrified the United States. These stories do not make for easy reading, but they need to be told.
But it’s not just about the tragedy and the macabre in World’s Most Chilling Crimes. Many stories also tell of the heroic efforts of authorities to unravel the mystery, find the perpetrators and bring them to justice.
