Publisher Description

Contained within the pages of this book are the stories behind some of the most notorious murders in Leicester's history. From the brutal murder of John Paas in 1832—whose killer became the last man in England to be gibbeted—and the poisoning of a 70-year-old widow by two young men, to the fatal shooting of a young woman in 1919—a case which was known as the “green bicycle murder” and was to become one of the most fascinating murder cases in legal history—this is a collection of the most dramatic and interesting criminal cases that have taken place in Leicester between the mid-1800s and the 1950s. This carefully researched, well-illustrated, and enthralling text will appeal to anyone interested in the shadier side of Leicester's history.
