    Bloody Business An Anecdotal History of Scotland Yard ePub ¿ Hardcover Download À berkingmad Bloody Business An Anecdotal History of Scotland YardThis book was published in 1992 so that is as far as it goes As stated in the introduction the author's goal is to attempt to counter undermining of Scotland Yard's reputation by various mystery writers He does a reasonably good job though his own prejudice isn't entirely lackingI found this book interesting and informative However if you are suimish at all I don't recommend it Descriptions of murders contain very specific details

    Bloody Business An Anecdotal History of Scotland Yard ePub ¿ Hardcover Download À berkingmad Bloody Business An Anecdotal History of Scotland YardGood if superficial compendium of true crime and a great intro to the Yard and its important antecedents Crimes of today were mostly eccentricities in the past Even murder most foul was largely unremarkable princely politics until the industrial revolution gave the common man a soul worth jurisprudence What fools these mortals etc

    Bloody Business An Anecdotal History of Scotland Yard ePub ¿ Hardcover Download À berkingmad Bloody Business An Anecdotal History of Scotland YardVery good read though uite disturbing For instance my knowledge of poisons definitely grew as I read on Is this a good thing? Really seems an awful way to die Antimony sounds pretty but its reality is horrid This book highlighted the relations of the police and British class struggles like celebrity status here In one well known casethe house was shown extremely deferential treatmentthey even wiped away a bloody handprint so it wouldn't upset the family I found out 'Sheriff' comes from 'shire reeve' think Cadfael 'Scotland Yard' was named thus because the original building was built in an area once used for Scottish dignitaries which called what else but Great Scotland Yard They rebuilt and became New Scotland Yard Now their place o

    Bloody Business An Anecdotal History of Scotland Yard ePub ¿ Hardcover Download À berkingmad Bloody Business An Anecdotal History of Scotland YardThis book fulfills reuirement #2 true crime for the 2014 eclectic reader challengeThis book covers the history of the creation of Scotland Yard through the 1990's I thought it was interesting and balanced the history of administration and the like with descriptions of some of the crimes they solved I was interested in the various crimes than the politics of running a police force but I thought the author did a good job of blending the two Occasionally I was a little confused by the dates as they were presented

    Bloody Business An Anecdotal History of Scotland Yard ePub ¿ Hardcover Download À berkingmad Bloody Business An Anecdotal History of Scotland YardThis is one of those slapped together Barnes Nobles books written by some nameless hack who probably churned out a cookbook last week and will be churning out a history of doorknobs next week Someone who grew up in Britain say and pays attention half way to stuff like this will find little that is new or enlightening But a lot of the Victorian stuff and the overview of the Metropolitan Police was new to me thus interesting No one should ever go out and actually buy this book full price; it'll show up in the remainder bins soon enough

    Bloody Business An Anecdotal History of Scotland Yard ePub ¿ Hardcover Download À berkingmad Bloody Business An Anecdotal History of Scotland YardThis book had a lot of interesting cases in it Given the number of cases Scotland Yard has tackled since its inception some brevity in discussion is understandable While I enjoyed reading this book I still felt like the author tried to cram a little too much in I would have enjoyed a extended treatment of the major cases This book did give me a better understanding of Scotland Yard and the effect of the attitude of the British people on Scotland Yard's workings
