Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths Around Brighton - True Crime Books

This gripping volume covers two centuries of murderous doings in Brighton portrayed in fifteen vivid case histories. All the crimes took place within the town except two, where the victims were prominent Brighton citizens travelling on business. The accounts are arranged in an unusual yet logical manner, namley by theme. The categories comprise trunk murders, poisonings, child murders, killings over nothing, deaths suffered on journeys, and provocation, infidelity and lust. Surprisingly, no single volume devoted to murders in Brighton has ever appeared before. This is extrordinary considering the town has been dubbed the 'Queen of Slaughtering Places'. As well as filling a void in the field of true crime on this part of the Sussex Coast, the book contains many rare images of Brighton in the past which admirably complement the text. Local historians and general readers alike will be fasinated by this pictorial material, much of it previousy unpublished.
