More Hampshire Murders by Nicola Sly


More Hampshire Murders by Nicola Sly

In this follow-up to Hampshire Murders, forensic and legal psychologist Nicola Sly brings together more murderous tales that shocked not only the county but made headline news throughout the nation. They include the last recorded fatal duel to have been fought in England in 1845; the mysterious death of Andover businessman William Parsons in 1858; the 1888 killing of Annie Vaughan by her stepfather who, for more than two years, had treated her `as his wife'; the murder of Grayshot village postmistress Emily Chapman by her husband in 1901; and the `murder that never was' - the victim's death was recorded as having been caused by his drunkenness until his naval commanding officer later confessed to killing him. Nicola Sly's well-illustrated and enthralling text will appeal to everyone interested in the shady side of Hampshire's history.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
