They include the poisonous Dr Palmer, murder on the canal, a tale of infanticide, the body in the gasometer, the chauffeur's revenge, murder on Cannock Chase and much more. Alan Hayhurst has spent many hours visiting the scenes detailed in this book, as well as researching original documents and talking to people who have memories of the individual crimes. His well-illustrated and enthralling text will appeal to all who are interested in the shady side of Staffordshire's history.
