The Murder Room
In Which Three of the Greatest Detectives Use Forensic Science to Solve the World's Most Perplexing Cold CasesBook - 2011
Thrilling, true tales from the Vidocq Society, a team of the world's finest forensic investigators whose monthly gourmet lunches lead to justice in ice-cold murders.
'Terrifying, engrossing, inspirational and surprisingly funny.' Kirkus Reviews
Three of the world's greatest detectives - a renowned former FBI agent, a forensic sculptor and an eccentric profiler known as 'the living Sherlock Holmes' - were distraught at the growing number of unsolved murders. And so William Fleisher, Frank Bender and Richard Walter pledged themselves to a quest for justice.
They invited the finest collection of forensic minds ever assembled, drawn from five continents, to bring the hidden killers of the world to account. Named after the first detective - Eugene Francois Vidocq - the Vidocq Society meets monthly to solve a cold case.
The Murder Room paints a chilling picture as the three partners travel far and wide to hunt - among countless others - the ruthless killers of a millionaire's son, a serial killer who carves off faces, and a child killer enjoying fifty years of freedom and dark fantasy.
Bestselling author Michael Capuzzo brings to life a world of dazzling forensic science, evil as old as the Bible and at its centre a group of passionate detectives - inspired by their own wounded hearts to make a stand for truth, goodness and justice in a world gone mad.
