Softcover. York, the city that was once the power base of the North - is built on a thousand years of bloodshed. Its history is well known, indeed, it is the very reason that the tourists flock there today. But like any other town, it has a hidden history, the darker moments of its past, buried and forgotten. The 19th century was a time of change for York. Its gentile, aristocratic citizens were leaving the city to grow like a sore inside those famous walls. Out of this festering, bawdy, drunken slum, came tales of the most dreadful kind. The author exhumes those tales - stories of hangmen, madmen and insane arson; of a sweet-toothed poisoner and murderers of the foulest breed. 150 yrs. of tragedy, mystery and horror. Illus., Bibliog. and Index. 176pp. 8vo From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F.
