    One thought on “Detective Piggott's Casebook Famous True Crime Cases”

    1. I have been reading this book for well over a year, frankly it seems like a lot longer I almost gave it up a couple of times but my curiosity regarding several points kept me reading I first heard about this book in a favorable review that peaked my interest in the early use, and evolution, of forensics science I then waited for the book quite a while after reading the review as it had yet to be published in the States Alas I wish I could say the wait was worth it but I found the book to be pret [...]

    2. Fredrick Piggott joined the Victorian Mounted Police in 1898 and throughout his career he took part in a number of investigations of crimes that made headlines in Victoria s early 20th century He is best know for his participation the case of the murdered school girl Alma Tirtschke of the infamous Gun Alley murder Kevin Morgan has not only researched the events of the time but also Piggott s long hidden personal papers What this book offers is not just a history of some of Victoria s gruesome a [...]

    3. This is a true crime novel, based on the case books of a high profile Victorian policeman named Fredrick Piggott who served in country Victoria and Melbourne during the early part of the 20th century.I enjoyed Detective Piggott s Casebook I was one of those kids who quite willing read the Casebook of Forensic Medicine in high school Not because I had to, but because I wanted to I enjoy the psychology of police work and crime detection, and also like to learn about the history of forensic science [...]

    4. An interesting idea to write a book based on a detectives notes This book sheds some light on what seems to be a rougher and nearly lawless Melbourne at the start of the century as well as Piggott s pioneering forensic methods that were a first in Australia This book never developed Piggott s character and I was confused how I should feel about him after finishing the book He solved the Gun Alley murder by presenting hair samples to the jury However, later we find out an innocent man was convict [...]

    5. Pretty interesting read, goes into the life of Detective Piggott as well as a select few cases with an amazing amount of detail It s a pretty good read to understand how police work was done before technology and overpopulation took over Hearing a persons testimony was taken as truth without question Evidence was linked to what people could remember about victims and the nature of people was questioned in depth as suspects.

    6. Interesting The stories were very well researched and well written, but we are left with an awkward portrait of Piggott himself His mistakes, which are many, are noted but the tone remains unfalteringly glowing I m left feeling a bit confused about the detective The cases, however, are thrilling and paint an excellent portrait of Victoria and Melbourne at the time.
