Softcover. The murder of Benjamin Robins of Dunsley Hall by William Howe, an itinerant carpenter, became something of a cause celebre at the time, due to the brutal nature of the attack and the subsequent gibbeting of Howe's body at the site of the murder. This book investigates the circumstances surrounding the case (also known as the Gibbet Lane Murder), concentrating on 3 aspects: detection, justice and punishment. The book also highlights the provincial activities of the Bow Street Runners', two of whom were successfully employed to detect and apprehend the perpetrator of the unprovoked murder and robbery. Illus. + Bibliog. and Notes. 72pp. card covers. F.
