5.0 out of 5 stars Murder Houses of London, 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Murder Houses of London (Hardcover)
I bought this for my sister, who loves anything to do with crime in London. She is currently reading it and is loving every word. She says that it is detailed and brutal, but honest about the crimes that happened. I may have to read it myself once she is finished. Brilliant book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book, 20 Mar 2014
By 
Junius (London, Middlesex United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Murder Houses of London (Hardcover)
There are many books about murders in London, but of very variable quality; often poorly researched and unoriginal, full of factual errors. This isn't one of them. It focusses on murders committed indoors in houses in central London north of the Thames, eg Westminster, Kensington, Islington and Tower Hamlets, and only where these houses still survive. So Crippen's house and Christie's are excluded, though not ignored, as is the house where Mary Jane Kelly was killed in 1888. The author covers many cases from the last two centuries, and discusses the survival of the majority of these houses.

The criticisms would be that the index is by names of persons involved not to streets/houses. Secondly, the sections on Heath and Haigh are factually inaccurate. Otherwise, very good indeed.
