Contained with the pages of this book are the stories behind some of the most notorious murders in Norfolk's history. The cases covered here record the county's most fascinating but least known crimes, as well as famous murders that gripped not just Norfolk but the whole nation. From the Burnham Poisoners of 1835 to the Yarmouth Beach Murders, from the Pixworth Horror to 'the last judicial beheading in England', this is a collection of the county's most dramatic and interesting criminal cases. Neil R Storey has gone back to original records and documents to uncover the truth about these extraordinary crimes. Using contemporary illustrations and tracing the stories through the words of those who were actually there on the ground, he re-creates the drama of case and courtroom. Norfolk Murders is a unique re-examination of the darker side of the county's past.
