Softcover. An anthology of the more obscure, but shockingly true felonious slayings in old Berkshire over the previous 300 years. The vast majority of these detailed and often spine-chilling accounts have never before been published. Some are unsolved, the perpetrators of the crimes never brought to justice; others paid with the ultimate sentence, a life for a life. This collection of murder stories uncovers such reports as Rosa Rose, the unfortunate Binfield waif who was accused of murdering her own child; the terrible demise of a young housekeeper from Henley; the lamentable quarrel that led to the death of a Wokingham blacksmith. There are murders at Winfield, Tilehurst and Slough, as well as three at Maidenhead, and a description of an horrific killing in Kingsclere, the subject of a massive cover-up by the governments of two countries. Illus. 120pp. trade size softcover. From the library of true-crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. with no creasing to covers.
