Foul Deeds and Suspicious death in Warwickshire (Paperback)
The history of Warwickshire has a wicked side - episodes of murder and villainy run through it. In this compelling book J.P. Lethbridge has selected over 20 of the most revealing, shocking and disturbing cases. His investigation throws new light on criminal acts and on the workings of the criminal mind. He takes the reader on a sinister journey through two centuries of murder and mayhem, following a trail left by cut-throats, thieves, revengeful husbands and lovers, forgers, arsonists and poisoners, and the rare case of a brother and sister who were hanged on the same gallows. The result is a fascinating study of Midlands' criminality which will be essential reading for anyone who is interested in the area's rich - and sometimes gruesome - past.
