The World's Greatest Unsolved Mysteries: Disappearances, Death, Assassination, and Tragedy...Unknown, Unsolved
Santrauka: The World’s Greatest Unsolved Mysteries: Disappearances, Death, Assassination, and Tragedy Unknown, Unsolved by Chancellor Press How many people have heard of Jerry Schneider and why he is famous? What about the mysterious circumstances of Michael Hutchence’s death in 1997? What exactly happened in the death of Princess Diana and who should be blamed for causing that death? This is a book filled with strange, mysterious and mostly unsolved crimes. It is broken into nine sections including crimes without call, crimes of our times, crimes of avarice, vanishing tricks, murder most foul, a question of murder, whodunit?, We’ll never know, and ghostly mysteries. Most of the stories included in this book are relatively short, usually about 2 – 3 pages. Their brevity takes nothing away from the mystery of the incident or event in any way. The story of Jack the Ripper is probably the longest story in the entire compilation at ten pages. Many of these stories I have never heard of. Jerry Schneider is famous for defrauding the master computer at Pacific Bell Telephone Company to the tune of one million dollars in 1972. The case is still unsolved and Jerry is the only person who knows what he did as there is no computer trace to investigate. Michael Hutchence died in 1997 under supposedly mysterious circumstances yet the coroner declared his death a suicide by hanging. Yet two hours earlier two friends left the hotel and Hutchence was fine or so they say. Some suggested his death was due to autoerotic suffocation with these two people. When he accidentally died, they bolted instead of staying and explaining what had occurred. Diana died at the end of August 1997 is circumstances that are still debated today. Was the driver of the car Henri Paul responsible (he was legally drunk at the time)? Were the paparazzi following Diana responsible for the crash that killed three people? Was there another vehicle involved with the crash as the evidence suggests? So many questions and so few answers. These are the kinds of stories you will find in this book. Not the best book ever compiled about the strange and mysterious but an interesting and enjoyable read nonetheless. If you get a chance to give it a read, I would suggest you do.
