This collection brings together thirteen criminal cases from County Durham's past that shocked not only the county but also made headline news across the country.

Cases featured here include the murder of PC William Smith, who was stoned to death at Butterknowle; the shooting of Superintendent Joseph Scott at Durham by a former colleague; a robbery and murder at Ferryhill, when bank clerk William Byland Abbey was stabbed to death; and the case of Charles Conlin, who killed his grandparents and buried them in a shallow grave at Norton-on-Tees.

Paul Heslop's well-illustrated and enthralling text will appeal to everyone interested in true crime and the shadier side of County Durham's past.
