Description
London has changed dramatically since the 14th century, from walled medieval settlement to bustling modern metropolis, notes writer and musician Max Décharné, yet throughout its history the city has had one inescapable constant: murder. Here Décharné presents a score of infamous cases, from the killing of "questmonger" Roger Legett during the Peasants' Revolt of 1381 through to the hanging of Styllou Christofi in 1954 for the murder of her daughter-in-law. Here too are such shocking characters as railway murderer Franz Müller, the "baby farmers" of Finchley, and political assassin John Bellingham.

"With a darkly evocative sense of place and period, this is a shocking and often poignant history of human nature's most violent impulses, and the vibrant city that forms their backdrop."—Good Book Guide
