Book Review - 100 Things They Don’t Want You to Know

by Daniel Smith (Quercus) ISBN: 9781848669123

Ever wondered why Lee Harvey Oswald was killed? Or if Jack the Ripper could have been a woman? Conspiracies, mysteries, and unsolved crimes: everybody loves them and the promise of revelation triggers the imagination. This book covers one hundred cases and possible theories about what really occurred with cosmonauts lost in space, stolen master pieces, codes that can’t be cracked.  

The stories are covered in two-page chapters divided over seven sections; crimes and conspiracies, mystery messages, disappearances, unaccountable deaths, strange encounters, forbidden history and frontiers of science.

What happened to Agatha Christie in the four days of her disappearance? Or to the two princes in the Tower of London? Do the powerful delegates of the Bilderberg have secret meetings to plot a new world order? What is the true identity of Shakespeare? How old is the Sphinx? If these questions make you curious, it’s the right book for you. 

Smith is the best-selling author of 100 Places You will Never Visit. This book is enjoyable - full of good subjects for table conversations.
