Description

Crime historian and law lecturer Vincent Burke brings together notorious murders that not only shocked the inhabitants of Merseyside, but made headline news across the country. Among them is the case of Florence Maybrick, tried and convicted for poisoning her husband in Liverpool in 1889; William Herbert Wallace, accused of bludgeoning his wife to death at their home in Anfield in 1931; and the tragic story of Nellie Clarke, whose murder at Birkenhead in 1925 remains unsolved. Vincent Burke's encyclopaedic knowledge of the law and trial process is reflected in this carefully researched, well-illustrated and enthralling book which will appeal to anyone interested in the shady side of Merseyside's history.show more
