Foul Deeds & Suspicious Deaths in Blackburn & Hyndburn
Publisher: Wharncliffe Books
Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths in Blackburn and Hyndburn examines 10 detailed murder cases that encompass the late Victorian period up until 1927. They are equally as gruesome and instructive as the better known cases that inhabit the pages of any number of true crime anthologies. All these tales of murder, suspicious deaths and foul deeds form part of the local history. Some of the cases were recorded nationally, whilst others have remained uncovered until now. The appalling social conditions that prevailed during the period of these crimes inevitably coloured the stories of the men, women and children who played their part in them.Take a journey into the darker side of your area and let your spine tingle, as you read Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths in Blackburn and Hyndburn.
