The Mammoth Book of Celebrity Murders(2005)
(A book in the The Mammoth Book of ... series)
An anthology of stories edited by Julie Ellis
This A-list selection looks in depth at 25 headline murder cases involving those who live their lives in the full beam of the media spotlight, including film starlets, TV actors, music legends, comedians, fashion moguls, movie directors, playwrights, and aristocrats from the start of the twentieth century to the present day. All, from Gianni Versace and John Lennon to Marvin Gaye and Patrizia Gucci, are well known, and in each instance the story of their untimely death is retold and the degree to which fame and its trappings played a part in the final outcome is explored. The Mammoth Book of Celebrity Murder offers a salacious examination of the murders that are played out in the glare of maximum publicity and paparazzi.
