Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths in Bath takes the reader on a sinister journey through centuries of local crime and conspiracy, meeting villains of all sorts along the way - cut-throats and poisoners, murderous lovers, assassins, prostitutes and suicides. There is no shortage of harrowing - and revealing - incidents of evil to recount in the long dark history of this respectable town. Kirsten Elliott's fascinating book records crime and punishment in Bath in all its shocking variety. Among the many acts of wickedness and despair the author records are robbery and revenge in Roman times, the brutal uncertainties of Bath in the dark ages and the highwaymen, gamblers and duellist of the Georgian period. The Victorian underworld is especially well represented - notorious cases of prostitution, infanticide and murder most foul are described in graphic detail here, along with outbreaks of mob violence and corruption in Bath council. Kirsten Elliott's chronicle of Bath's hidden history - the history the town would prefer to forget - will be compelling reading for anyone who is interested in the dark side of human nature.
