Foul Deeds & Suspicious Deaths in Suffolk
Publisher: Wharncliffe Books
True stories of real-life British mysteries and murders going back centuries—photos included. This book tells stories of murder, deceit, and pure malice committed over the centuries in this traditionally rural part of East Anglia in England. From crimes of passion to opportunistic killings and coldly premeditated acts of murder, the full spectrum of criminality is recounted here. In this collection of grisly crime stories, Mark Mower takes us on a journey through the darker side of Suffolk folklore, with tales of poisoning, grave robbing, stabbing, shooting, and larceny. On the way we meet highwaymen, cut-throats, murderous lovers, homicidal relatives, pirates, and purveyors of human flesh. The dramas he describes are often played out in the most commonplace of circumstances—while others are so odd as to be stranger than fiction.
