Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths around the Tees - True Crime Book

Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths Around the Tees, contains over sixty terrible and gruesome tales, that are set in the locality including; Barnard Castle, Darlington, Middlesbrough, Hartlepool and many of the surrounding villages.In the nineteenth-century, Victorian industrialists built their empires in the beautiful scenery and charming villages of the Tees area, using the river for transport of the commodities that were produced. Small, cramped houses were built to accommodate the rising population and often three or more families would live in one small dwelling.

Many of the workers were illiterate and heavy drinkers. Domestic violence and drunken brawls were common amongst the poorer classes. Women and children were often a burden to the breadwinner and were held in low esteem. In a period spanning 100 years from 1799-1899 these well-researched events give an insight into the darker side of our region's history and heritage.Take a journey into the darker side of your area and let your spine tingle, as you read Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths Around the Tees.
