About This Book

London is a city of millennia. A city of power, ingenuity and industry. A city unlike any other. But it is also a city of sin. The city of sin. It is the city where a simple complaint about blocked drains ends with the discovery of human remains in the fridge; it is the city where ‘resurrectionists’ dug up bodies and sold them on for profit, sometimes stopping of at a public house en route, with their grim cargo still in tow. It is the city where martyrs were burned on a spot where flesh is sold today. Where ‘Jack the Ripper’ prowled for four short months which have left a legacy lasting a century and a quarter. London’s greatest sinners have shaped the city. Join them as their tales guide you on a tour of the dark, the hidden and the mysterious – of the deadliest of London’s deadly sins.
