Detective Piggotts Casebook Famous True Crime CasesState’s most gruesome and mysterious crimes including the notorious schoolgirl murders of Alma Tirtschke and Irene Tuckerman and the horrific ‘headless boy’ and ‘Yarra baby killer’ cases These uncensored accounts expose the graphic and often perplexing nature of the period’s criminal investigation work and point to the dawn of a new era in Australian crime detection the rise of forensic scien. 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 convicted and executed for this crime Piggott also appeared to put his intuition ahead of due process in the Caulfield murder and handled that investigation in a very sloppy manner He introduced Australia to a few new ideas and concepts but I didn't find any of his his investigative techniues to be all that impressive Is this the takeaway the author was intendingKevin Morgan for the majority of the book did a great job selecting cases to include The 'father' chapter did nothing to develop Piggott's character and was an open and shut case with absolutely no mystery whatsoever I'm not sure why he included that case All in all it was an enjoyable book about the city's darker days I plan on visiting the state library in Melbourne and looking through the case files on cite
