New Light is shed on thirty-three of the greatest enigmas of all time, strange disappearances, problems of identity, curious happenings, and other mysteries that have intrigued the world for centuries. Many of these mysteries have never been solved. Did Joan of Arc survive after the burning at Rouen? What really happened to Amelia Earhart? What was the fate of Count Konigsmark? Is there a mystery about the parentage of Prince Albert? What caused Commander Crabb's disappearance under the waters of Portsmouth Naval Base while Russian warships were anchored there? Are the British people the lost tribe of Israel? Ghosts and treasure troves also find their place in this fascinatiing collection of tales. Presented and assessed are the facts and theories about the Monster of Glamis, the desecration of the Barabbas tomb, the haunting of the Borley Rectory, and the devil's footprints in Devonshire. The stories of the Lost Dutchman mine in Arizona and the treasure cache in the South Seas raise the question of how much hidden wealth lies awaiting discover.
