If like me you read this and then sign up to one of Declan's tours, you're in for a real treat - great value too!
The content is broked into locations so you can focus on one area and gives full address, tube details too. As an example you can go and vist the pub where the murderer Denis Nielson met his first victim, so sit there with a pint and get a feel to that scene. In fact many of the stories suggest a coffee shop or pub nearby to the location where you can read a chapter before going outside and finding the spot of interest.
The stories are not confined to the Victorian era (hence Nielson) but clearly covers Jack the Ripper in quite a bit of depth, together with many, many snippets of locations including incidents with the Krays and locations such as Drury Lane where the plque was said to have been discovered.
So rather than going into full details, if you like the darker side of London in an easy to read, practical book that you can jump around to areas and stories/incidents and places of interest then Bloody London works well.
The chapters centre around the different regions of London: West Central, West, North, East, East Central, South West, South East and is interspersed with other sections on other issues such as execution sites or more information on serial killers. Therefore it would be perfect to stick this book in your bag (or large pocket!) and head to a particular region of London to explore it further. There are also some cute line drawing maps to assist in accompanying any jaunt you may make.
In conclusion: a brilliantly researched little book which will no doubt take pride of place on people's bookshelves. I look forward to being able to explore entire London area during the next few years with this book at my side.
