Not all crimes are solved by lab-savvy CSI teams, matching some small piece of trace evidence to the culprit's DNA... they are solved by hard-working detectives doing the leg-work that has been a requirement of police for hundreds of years. And no-one knows this better than author Arthur Train, who was a District Attorney in New York, working side-by-side with the police. This book chronicles eleven fascinating cases that include a talented freehand check forger with a brilliant courtroom strategy, a 500-million-dollar fraud scheme including title to New York's Central Park, a stolen Stradivarius violin, a swindling telegrapher reminiscent of a Newman-Redford movie, and many more. This is the stuff that great books and movies are made of, but the reader must always keep in mind that the crimes covered in this book are not from the creative imagination of an author - they are real-life stories that have actually happened.
