Publisher Description

More than five hundred years of British true crime stories—from mutinies and murders to duels and executions.
 
This collection of historical true crime tales includes more than twenty notorious episodes that range from medieval times to the modern era, and offers a fascinating insight into criminal acts and the criminal mind.
 
Set in the vicinity of Portsmouth, England, these intriguing and shocking cases cover an extraordinary variety of misdeeds, some motivated by brutal impulse or despair, others by malice. Most involve ill-fated individuals who are only known to us because they were caught up in crime, but more famous episodes appear as well, such as the murder of the Duke of Buckingham and the disappearance of the Cold War frogman Buster Crabb.
