Descripción Marshall Cavendish International (Asia) Pte Ltd, 2009. Soft cover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. 319 pp. The Tenth Man Gold Bar Trials (1981) The true story of the murder of a gold merchant and his two employees reads like a fast-paced thriller. The plotters knew they had to silence the gold merchant forever to prevent him from seeking vengeance for the theft of 120 gold bars. Ten men were involved in the robbery and responsible for the cold-blooded murders. Nine of them were subsequently found guilty and seven were hung, two narrowly escaping the gallows because of their extreme youth. The Tenth Man escaped death. From the sinister excitement of the plotting and the merciless, savage execution of the victims, to the hiding and waiting for eventual retribution, this will prove one gripping read. The Murder of a Beauty Queen (1984) This is the story of a man found guilty on circumstantial evidence, of the murder of his beautiful, sensuous, rich and widowed sister-in-law. Not until the condemned man appealed did a witness admit he had committed perjury given false evidence. Confessing, this was the first time in Malaysia s legal history that a witness in a murder trial had been convicted and sentenced to long-term imprisonment for perjury. The accused was finally acquitted. Had he been hung and the perjurer exposed later, this perjurer would most likely have been hung in accordance to the law that demands a life for a life in these circumstances. With carnal and carnage in flux, this is a trial not to be missed. 0.0. Nº de ref. de la librería 9814276219SING063015
