Book Description

Herefordshire Murders brings together twenty-eight murderous tales, some which were little known outside the county and others which made national headlines. Herefordshire was home to one of Britain's most infamous murderers, Major Herbert Rowse Armstron, who, in 1921, poisoned his wife and attempted to poison a fellow solicitor in Hay-on-Wye. However, the county has also experienced many lesser known murders. They include the case of two-year-old Walter Frederick Steers, brutally killed in Little Hereford in 1891; eighty-seven-year-old Phillip Ballard, who died at the hands of two would-be burglars in Tupsley in 1887; Jane Haywood, murdered by her husband near Leominster in 1903; and the shooting of two sisters at Burghill Court, near Hereford, by their butler in 1926. Nicola Sly's carefully researched and enthralling text will appeal to everyone interested in the shady side of Herefordshire's history.

More About the Author

An interest in crime and criminal behaviour led me to take a degree in Psychology, followed by a Master's Degree in Forensic and Legal Psychology. I now put my qualifications to good use by teaching adult learners who wish to gain the necessary qualifications for university entrance. (Although my 'specialist subjects' are criminology and forensic psychology, I have also taught crime and media, psychology and drug awareness courses.)

When I'm not teaching or researching and writing about murders and other gruesome occurrences I enjoy gardening and exploring the Cornish countryside with my husband and two dogs. I read voraciously and am a lifelong speedway fan.

I found the book interesting since its areas of were I live, some of the stories did get a bit short which was a shame, but others were interesting and kept me wanting to read more when I had finished the book.
