Book description

The four cases of murder that are examined in this volume are remarkable in that they were all the focus of intense media interest at the time. They each still retain a power to both fascinate and horrify today's reader.

The evidence given at the trial of Thurtell and Hunt in 1824 gives a graphic picture of the seedy underworld of the Georgian sporting 'fancy' as well as a glimpse into a now vanished legal system. Over a hundred years later, Frederick Nodder was accused first of the abduction and then of the murder of a little girl, whose body took five months to surface from the river.

The case against Peter Barnes and four others, two of them women, took place on the eve of the Second World War. They were accused of involvement in the IRA bombing in Coventry: five people died and over sixty were injured.

Finally, John Haigh eventually claimed he had murdered as many as nine people and had drunk their blood. He was charged with the single murder of an elderly lady whose body he had dissolved in acid — the forensic evidence against him was all too clear.
