Warwickshire has seen
its fair share of murder down the centuries. This latest collection
explores notorious crimes from the nineteenth and early twentieth
centuries, using contemporary documents; trial transcripts and newspaper
accounts to examine cases that gripped both the county and the nation.
Murders is a powerful and fascinating reappraisal of some of the
most brutal and gruesome killings in the country’s history. Among the
stories included is the case of Edwin James Moore, who set fire to his
murder after an argument over supper at Leamington Spa in 1907, the
Coventry bombing in 1939, for which two men were executed in February
1940, and the case of Thomas Ball, who was poisoned by his wife in 1848.
She was later tried and executed in Coventry and was the last woman to
be executed in public.
Warwick to Rugby, Coventry to Nuneaton and Stratford to
Leamington Spa, Warwickshire Murders is a unique re-examination of the
darker side of the county’s past and is sure to be a must-listen for
true crime enthusiasts everywhere.
