Hardback. This collection of notorious murder trials covers a long period of British and French justice ranging from 1743 to 1934. The author has delved deeply into the 'contemporary' records and provides a description of the circumstances surrounding each case and a full reconstruction of the crime. The crimes are a gruesomely mixed bag including the trial for murder of two body-snatchers who hawked the corpse of a 14yr old boy around London trying to get a good price for it; the case of the murdered choir girl in which a respected Methodist elder was accused of cutting her throat; the execution of a Derbyshire Squire 35yrs after the murder of his son begotten by his sister; the mysterious death of Judge Prince in Paris after the Stavisky scandal. Featuring Franz Felix Stumm, 1881-2; William Gardiner, 1902-3; William Horne, 1724-59; John Breeds, 1743; Bishop, Williams, and May, 1831; King Louis-Philippe, I, 1830-48; Judge Albert Prince, 1934; Louisa Jane Taylor, 1882.
