Synopsis

The history of the Black Country has a dark side - episodes of violent death and villainy run through it. In this compelling book David Cox and Michael Pearson have select over 20 of the most revealing, shocking and disturbing cases. Their investigation throws new light on criminal acts and on the workings of the criminal mind. They take the reader on a sinister journey from medieval to modern times, following a trail left by cut-throats, traitors, rapists, thieves, murderous husbands and lovers, horse-slashers, torturers and brutal executioners. The result is a fascinating study of Black Country criminality which will be essential reading for anyone who is interested in the area's rich - sometimes gruesome - past.
