Crooks Like Us by Peter Doyle

Peter Doyle has selected historical mug shots of uncanny interest from the collection of the Sydney Justice & Police Museum for this follow-up to his similar and very successful book City of Shadows.  Both are published by the Foundation for the Historic Houses Trust and are absolutely fascinating and have attracted interest internationally.

Doyle is also author of a series of historical crime fiction, described elsewhere on this site.


Crooks Like Us [is] extraordinarily beautiful and utterly absorbing
