Softcover. The author brings together 36 murderous tales that shocked not only Wales but also made national headlines. This fascinating book covers every 20th century murder committed in Wales which resulted in a judicial execution. They include the case of William Augustus Lacey, who killed his young wife with a razor in a fit of jealousy at Pontypridd in 1900; baby farmer Rhoda Willis, the first woman to be hanged at Cardiff Prison, in 1907; Eric Lange, who brutally murdered the landlord of the Bridgend Hotel, Pentre, in 1904; and Thomas Ronald Lewis Harries, who murdered both his uncle and aunt and buried them in a shallow grave on a farm in Llangynin in 1954. The author's carefully researched, well-illustrated and enthralling text will appeal to anyone interested in the shady side of Welsh history, and should give much food for thought. It is the definitive book on capital crimes in the Principality. Illus. + Bibliog. 192pp. 8vo. softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Nr. F.
