9780140006346: Famous Trials: Herbert Rowse Armstrong, Field and Gray, George Joseph Smith, Ronald True v. 2 (Penguin crime)

The four trials recorded in this book are particularly compelling, partly because of the wealth of forensic skills they demonstrate and partly because of the successful piecing together of scanty evidence. Herbert Armstrong's generosity with arsenic aroused suspicion as to the true cause of his wife's death. Field and Gray were two bumbling, inept murderers who failed even to receive the mercy the jury requested. George Smith invented numerous identities and married, deserted or murdered for money, while Ronald True was mentally deranged besides being dangerous and greedy.
