Geoffrey Howse explores the darker and sinister side of South Yorkshire’s past in this diverse collection of crimes and foul deeds, taken from Victorian to modern times.

Read about a shooting and ‘mob rule’ in Doncaster, sensational murder in Darfield, Mexborough, and Attercliffe; trade outrages in Sheffield and Rotherham, highway robbery at Wentworth, embezzlement in Barnsley and arson at Thorne.

Unusual cases include a Doncaster elopement and robbery, burglaries by girls in Rotherham, the shocking killing of a police constable at Swinton and ‘coal’ riots and lawlessness in Wath-upon-Dearne and Hoyland. A dramatic event in Thurnscoe , a Wombwell stabbing affray and a variety of long forgotten tragedies and crimes are also explored in some detail.

This is a very interesting and well researched book by a past master in crime writing.
