Book Description

Worcestershire Murders brings together numerous murderous tales, some of which were little known outside the county, and others which made national headlines. Contained within the pages of this book are the stories behind some of the most heinous crimes ever committed in Worcestershire. They include the murders of the entire Gummery family at Berrow in 1780; Catherine Gulliver, killed by John Butler at Ombersley in 1864; and Maria Holmes, slain by her husband at Bromsgrove in 1872. Cases from the twentieth century include two unsolved murders - the body of an unidentified woman found in a tree in Hagley Wood in 1943, and the brutal killing of Florrie Porter at Lickey End in 1944. Nicola Sly's carefully researched and enthralling text will appeal to anyone interested in the shady side of Worcestershire'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.
