I have had this set of books since the mid-1990's and collected the entire set of 9 titles. In great condition, from a non-smoking home with no pets. Bindings are tight and pages clean, having been read only once (if that). Each book includes numerous black-and-white photographs, with many crime scene photos throughout.
A very collectible series and difficult to find as a complete set. For the True Crime buff, it doesn't get any better than this!

All items areauctioned as is. I try to describe each item as completely as possible. Please view the pictures carefully. If you have any questions regarding the item itself, shipping charges, etc., please contact me before bidding and I will be happy to clarify.

Payment Information
Payment must be in US dollars. Preferred payment is through PayPal, which accepts most credit cards and e-checks, and is expected within 5 days of the auction’s end. If you have not contacted me (or responded to my e-mails to you) within 7 days, I will cancel the transaction, and report the non-payment to eBay to recover my selling fees.

Shipping Information
Shipping charges may be calculated by I generally offer more than one shipping method. Depending on the item’s size, it may be sent via UPS Ground. Upon receipt of cleared funds, I will ship your purchase within 2 business days. Shipping charges are actual; on occasion, I may add a modest charge for shipping materials I don’t have on hand.

Please note that I will not be responsible for any uninsured item. You assume all risks. Unfortunately, insurance is no longer offered as an “option” on eBay. If the item is fragile or of significant value, I have built in the nominal insurance fee into my equally nominal handling fee. I take great pride in packing all my items very securely and with great care. However, once the package leaves my hands it is no longer in my control, and responsibility is assumed by the shipping carrier. Thank you for your understanding.

Please contact me if any product is damaged in transit. If insured, I will process the claim and refund your payment when the claim is resolved. It will be necessary to return the item, as the shipping carrier generally requires proof of damage. U...
