    The confessions of a con man as told to Will Irwin (1909) PDF book When these confessions appeared serially, friends and distant enquirers took it for granted that they were fiction; that I had stitched together, from the experiences of many grafters, the biography of a typical one. I hasten to assure the reader that this is a genuine confession; that I figure in it but as the transcriber of a life story told me I believe with every conscientious effort at truth during a month of pleasant association in New York. As a reporter, a little skilled in distinguishing the truth from the lie, I believed, when I wrote,…

    Thirty years a detective (1900) PDF book by Allan Pinkerton

    Thirty years a detective; a thorough and comprehensive exposé of criminal practices of all grades and classes (1900) by Allan Pinkerton “The mental characteristics of Allan Pinkerton were judgment as to facts, knowledge of men, the ability to concentrate his faculties on one subject, and the persistent power of will. A mysterious problem of crime, against which his life was devoted, presented to his thought, was solved almost in an instant, and seemingly by his intuitions. With half-closed eyes, he saw the scene in which the wrong was done, read every movement of the criminals, and reached invariably the correct conclusion as to their conduct and guilt.” Author: Allan Pinkerton Publication Date:1900…

    Twenty Human Monsters In Purple and In Rags From Caligula To Landru PDF book (1929) by Philip Beaufoy Barry Caligula This is not a book for the squeamish. When a writer sets out to write about horrible persons, he does not deal with rosewater and pleasant Sunday afternoons.  The seeker after pleasant pages must look elsewhere. Equally, this book makes a small appeal to those whose reading appetites seek the stimulant of the mysterious. The ingenious lover of detective fiction will find in the pages of his pet authors mysteries that outweigh in thrill and suspense the actual crimes of the Newgate Calendar. In this book, I have set down…
