Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A detailed account of the murders of Birmingham that resulted in the person responsible being executed in the 20th century.

This book offers a description of the crime, the court case, the appeals and the outcome of each case. These are well written, clear and free from errors and contradictions (something that is not the case in works of a similar kind by other authors).

But, to me, it is as important as a social history of the times when the crimes were committed. It offers a valuable window to how life was at various points in 20th century Birmingham. The streets, pubs and other places mentioned still exist, but society has changed completely since the times of these crimes. It is wonderful to experience how things were, even if it is via the tragic events described.

I highly recommend this book.

A note on the Kindle edition: largely it is presented very well. There are a number of hyphens wrongly introduced into words and, in one or two places, a duplicated sentence. Given the price I paid for the Kindle version (less than £1.50) I feel these are acceptable as the work still reads perfectly well.

On the basis of this title I have bought others by the same author, covering other areas of England.
