Hardback. James Billington and his 3 sons, Thomas, William and John, were responsible for 235 executions in Great Britain and Ireland between 1884 and 1905. They hanged many notorious murderers, but equally fascinating is the story of the family. The author provides a complete account of the stories behind James Billington's 151 executions, as well as introducing the reader to the real man behind the rope - a man whose business was death. Illus., Nigel Preston Interview, Author's Note, Appendices, Bibliog. and Index. 224pp. 8vo. h/back. As New in dw.
