Keith Skinner and Alan Moss, authors of 'The Scotland Yard Files: Milestones in Crime Detection', celebrate the work of Fleet Street courtroom artist William Hartley. Sketching portraits of the accused in courts including the Old Bailey from 1893 to 1918, Hartley captured the faces of some of the period's most notorious criminals. Skinner and Moss tell the tales behind the pictures and reveal the details of the most gory cases.
