Hardback. Although Birmingham is Engand's second city, its inhabitantss have proved to be much less inclined to kill their fellows than in other areas of the country, but those who have picked up the knife, cocked the gun, or wielded the blunt instrument have done so for a myriad of reasons and their stories make fascinating reading. This book contains stories of men who committed murder within the immediate area of the city of Birmingham during the 20th century, and who went on to pay the ultimate penalty of death at the end of a rope. Since this would not include every execution in the city's jail, there is an Appendix which details other Birmingham hangings and so the true crime historian can use this as a complete reference work. For others it will simply make absorbing reading about a darker side of this city. Illus., Appendix, Bibliog., and Index. 256pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true-crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in Nr. F. dw.
