Product description


"John J Eddleston is a prolific writer on criminal history in Britain. The author's aim in this insightful and educational book appears to give the reader the full facts of each historical case. The murder, the arrest, the interviews and the trial. The motive and opportunity put forward by the prosecution against the argument of innocence, the alibi's and the mitigating circumstances put forth by the defence. To let us, the readers, make up our own minds on the innocence or guilt of each one of these individuals. In doing so, John J Eddleston not only provides an engaging account of each case, which alone provides an enlightening read, but provides discussion and oppor tnity for readers to consider the outcomes and their opinion on them. A pleasing element of this books is the many images included in each chapter. All black and white. they show the scenes of crimes, the victims as they lived before their demise and the alleged perpetrators. With the backgrounds, features and clothing on display, they all give a stark reminder of the era most of these crimes and trials took place in. In Miscarriages of Justice there is a sadness as you read through each well-formed chapter and understand the details of each case. Chapter provide excellent summaries without getting bogged down in too much detail. Eddleston has clearly carefully selected cases to include from the many available and has chosen well.A well organised, researched and well presented book on the miscarriages of justice within the UK in the 20th century."--Crime Bookshelf
