Hardback. The story of every murder which took place in Manchester in the 20th century, and which ended in the execution of the person responsible who went on to pay the ultimate penalty of death at the end of a rope. Some cases are well-known, such as those of George Rice, William Burtoft and Walter Graham Rowland, but any of the lesser-known murderers have equally absorbing stories. Readers will discover child killers such as John Horner, wife killers such as Frederick Ballington, and those who killed out of rage or revenge, such as Jan Mohamed. There were many executions at Manchester during the 20th century, but the author has only included those crimes which in themselves had a definite Manchester bias. To satisfy the true crime historian, however, there is an Appendix which gives a complete list of all those executed at Strangeways since 1900. Illus., Appendix and Index. 250pp. lge. 8vo. h/back. With signs of b/plate removal to fpd, 2pp. of illus. 'edgy' o/w Vg+ in Vg+ dw. Will require additional postage if shipped overseas.
