Softcover. A detailed look at heinous crimes from the county's past; all are distinguished by a common thread - violent and untimely death. The author describes the brutality of the ultimate crime and the tragic, often pathetic circumstances of both victims and murderers. The motives are varied and often complex, ranging from passion and sheer animal rage to straightforward criminal greed. How did the army deserter expect to get away with the murder of Pointefract silversmith Rhoda Walker in August 1918? What was the motive for Percy and Alice Baker's deaths at a farmhouse near Huddersfield in 1947? Why was Walter Wyld stabbed to death in his kitchen in York in the winter of 1951? And did well known burglar Alfred Moore really shoot Inspector Duncan Fraser and Constable Arthur Gordon Jagger at Kirkheaton in July 1951, or was he innocent as he protested to the end? Involved in solving all these crimes are the local police officers and detectives. They spend most of their lives patiently gathering the evidence which will close the net around the guilty. Illus., Index. 128pp. softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F.
