What are the crime stories that fuel Sunday lunch discussions and provide writers with a framework for their imagination to work on? What kind of depth does the criminal fact conceal so that we never finish exploring certain cases that fascinate us, even obsess us for years? The ambition of this book is to answer these questions by identifying, from a large number of cases, cold or hot, the reasons for our interest in stories, enigmas and criminal investigations.
