More Bristol Murders by Nicola Sly


More Bristol Murders by Nicola Sly

This chilling follow-up to Bristol Murders brings together more true-life historical murders that shocked not only the city but frequently made headline news throughout the nation. They include the brutal murders of policemen Patrick White in 1846 and Christopher Wickham in 1862, a frightful case of murder and suicide at Bitton in 1842, and the deliberate starvation of a child at Knowle in 1874. There are murders for money, such as the murder of Mary Lewis in Stapleton in 1836, and a brief, but tantalising, mystery from 1915 when two separate murders in different parts of the city showed remarkable similarities. Nicola Sly's well-illustrated and enthralling text will appeal to everyone interested in true crime and the shadier side of Bristol's past.
