Timeline
'you won't look at everyday objects in the same way again after thumbing through this superb collection of crime memorabilia... provides a riveting overview not only of the variety of cases investigated by the Metropolitan Police, but also of how crime has evolved over the last 40 years' - The Daily Mail; 'One of the few problems with show is its size. There's simply too much to see and read in one ticketed visit. This companion book is an excellent solution. It includes full-colour photographs of most, if not all of the objects from the exhibition, with accompanying text - allowing you to browse through this unique collection of crime history at your leisure... well produced' - Londonist; 'this is a beautifully designed book. It's a good slab of a coffee-table book for its GBP12.99, and is visually striking. That's not just the front cover, but throughout - the page design is lovely, the choice of black/white/orange works extremely well, and I'd be proud to have written a book that is presented so well by the publisher' - Criminal Historian
