Softcover. In this chilling investigation of foul deeds and mysterious deaths, the author leads the reader through his native countryside in search of the truth behind many unexplained mysteries and unsolved murders. Isolated moorland inns and quiet dales conceal memorable tales of passion and despair, from the awful Hand of Glory to the strange death of Sarkless Kitty. As a Yorkshireman, the author has a special insight into many local enigmas including the curious City of Troy and the 7 unknown seamen who lie buried in a churchyard near the coast. He examines the evidence which indicates the final resting-places of satirist Laurence Sterne, who was seized by the body-snatchers, and Oliver Cromwell, hanged, drawn and quartered after his death. As a police officer, the author took part in England's largest manhunt in 1982 (Barry Peter Prudom alias Edwards), and his breathtaking account brings the catalogue of crime up to publication date. An intriguing wide-ranging collection of murders and mysteries. With Map and Index. 192pp. trade size softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. with no creasing to covers.
