This chilling collection brings together true-life historical murders that shocked not only the city but frequently made headline news throughout the country.
Cases featured here include riots in 1791, a bank robbery in 1844 and an arson attack in 1912. Murder most foul also raises it's ugly head, with John Thompson stabbed his common-law wife in a fit of drunken jealousy in 1861, and Mary Albion is murdered in her bed when a robbery went wrong in 1898.

Vanessa Morgan's well-illustrated and enthralling text will appeal to everyone interested in true crime and the shadier side of Birmingham's past.
