About This Book

For those who would sooner seek out 10 Rillington Place, 39 Hilldrop Crescent or Whitechapel’s infamous Blind Beggar than pay a visit to Westminster Abbey or the National Gallery, LONDON MURDERS pinpoints the exact locations of scores of the bloodiest, most intriguing and sinister murders in London’s last 100 years. Featuring names such as Crippen, Kray, Haigh, Christie and Ellis, whose terrible crimes shocked the world, this compelling guide divides the metropolis into areas compact enough to be explored on foot in an afternoon. The book describes in detail the events, the characters involved and the eventual fates of the perpetrators, which include playwrights and politicians, celebrities and spies, royalty, aristocrats and, of course, countless ordinary Joes. Crisscrossing the heart of London as well as reaching deep into the suburbs, LONDON MURDERS matches crimes to buildings as the author walks the reader through the city’s streets whilst revealing their tragic and awful histories.
