UK Publication Date

Drawing on the Daily Mirror's outstanding archive and Haynes Publishing's wealth of experience, this book continues the successful 'Crimes of the Century' series. Claire Welch has been given access to thousands of hours of investigative journalism highlighting how in the early part of the 20th century, kidnapping was fast becoming a real threat.
This book takes a look at some notorious kidnappings, touching on the cases that have blighted society for the past 100 years.
Kidnap is a chilling reminder of the power people can, and do, exert over others, particularly the vulnerable and the young. Meaning to remove a person against their will and hold in false imprisonment, kidnapping for money is still a common occurrence in many parts of the world today.
Kidnapping is also prevalent in some parts of the world as a means for obtaining slaves, and human trafficking is reported to be the fastest growing criminal industry across the globe. These forms of kidnap see profits of billions of dollars for the perpetrators. Often, those kidnapped by traffickers, particularly women and children, are subjected to a life of sexual exploitation.
The kidnappings of Patty Hearst, Sarah Payne, Ben Needham, Madeleine McCann, Charles Lindburgh Junior and many other high profile cases are covered within these pages.
