  • This book is about the criminal events took place in and around the medieval town of Sopron. The writer (Jenő Szabó) collected the most interesting crime cases from it's history. The book is almost 200 pages, not too long but has many chapters, and every chapter has a coat of arms styled illustration. The cover is based on the etching of Zakariás Michel from 1700 and shows one of the big fires of the town. The side notes conatins the transalations and the explanations of the foreign words and sentences. The paper is cream-coloured a little.
