Local books for local people & others!
on 1 March 2014
I happened upon this book while browsing, & was most interested to read about the shady underbelly of the streets I worked among for many years. I imagined the past to be a much more civilised place with regard to violence & social problems. Not so! Margaret Drinkall shatters these mistaken beliefs with her interesting account of dark deeds, murder & mayhem in our not so peaceful past. I found many more similar books covering almost the entire country, with more tawdry tales of foul felony! The Penny Dreadful lives on! I intend to make room for them on my kindle.
