Looming ominously over the city, the stony battlements of Nottingham Castle speak of a long and violent criminal history. Illustrated with more than forty photographs as well as chilling original artwork, this selection of true-crime stories provides a fascinating introduction to the darker side of Nottinham's past. Winding its way through shadowed side streets and twisting back alleys and spanning the years between the thirteenth and twentieth centuries, this book documents a wide range of murderous misdeeds, from the infamous career of Charlie Peace - master criminal and virtuoso violinist - and the disasterous consequencesa of his affair with a Nottingham girl, to the exorcism of Thomas Darling and the lovers who eloped to join a band of highwaymen. Featuring cases of murder, sorcery, disease, cannibalism, suicide, pugilism, dismemberment, rioting, gun battles and gaol breaks, "Murder and Crime in Nottingham" is sure to horrify and captivate anyone interested in the criminal history of the area.
