The 20 Weirdest Unsolved Mysteries

Discussing "conspiracy theories" will generate one of two reactions: a patronising tut and roll of the eyes, or the scraping of a chair being pull closer to the conversation.

As you're here, we're assuming you reacted with the latter.

In his new book 100 Things They Don’t Want You To Know, author Daniel Smith looks at 100 of the world’s greatest mysteries, disappearances, unsolved crimes and conspiracy theories - many that'll cause you to chuckle in knowing wisdom, others that'll see you digging around gloomy online chatrooms in search of the "truth".

Here Smith talks us through the 20 weirdest mysteries he has come across.
