Softcover. A collection of true tales of murder, that most heinous of crimes, committed in and around the Bolton area. Tales of murder through greed, revenge, robbery and sheer evil from the dark Victorian days, when times were hard and a convicted murderer could expect to receive severe punishment. 'To be hanged by the neck until dead' was the sentence most feared. In this comprehensive chronicle of spine chilling killers, the author has dug deep into the archives to recall such stories as : Betty Eccles - who poisoned her children; the cut-throat murder on Trinity Street; the brutal slaying of a Belmont school-mistress; the body in the River Croal; the ruthless Bradshawgate Gang; the wife murderer who was hanged by his old friend. Also included are tales of body-snatching, cold blooded butchery, infanticide, wife-murder, rape and cases in which the killers were never brought to justice. Illus. 111pp. trade size softcover. F. with no creasing to covers.
