Softcover. The author takes the reader back in time on a visit to the dark side of Victorian Manchester and true accounts of murders and other suspicious deaths. Some of the cases caused a sensation at the time they were committed, although most have since been long forgotten. However, the author brings them dramatically to life, and we encounter the abortionist, the brutal husband, the politically motivated offenders, the robber and spurned lover amongst others. The victims meet their deaths in a range of locations, including the street, their squalid homes, the workhouse, prison and an exclusive gentleman's club. In some of the cases, victim and perpetrator are well known to each other, whereas in others, they are strangers, who were brought together for just a few brutal moments. The author never loses sight of the fact that each crime was a unique human tragedy, not simply for the victims and their friends and families, as the killers also had those who cared for them. Illus., Sources and Bibliog. + Index. 160pp. 8vo. softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Nr. with no creasing to covers.
