3.0 out of 5 stars MURDER, MYSTERY & MAYHEM, 25 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black Country Murders (Paperback)
PREVIOUSLY UNTOLD TALES OF `MUYDER' ON OUR DOORSTEPS (FOR THOSE WHO LIVE IN AND AROUND THE WEST MIDLANDS).

QUITE AN INTERESTING READ OF HISTORICAL MURDERS FROM THE BLACK COUNTRY. EQUALLY JUST AS INTERESTING FOR ANYONE WHO LIKES TRUE CRIME AND MURDER MYSTERY.

ALTHOUGH FACTUALLY WELL RESEARCHED AND ILLUSTRATED THROUGHOUT WITH SEMI RELATIVE IMAGES FROM WHAT SEEM TO BE NEVER ENDING EXAMPLES FROM THE "AUTHOR'S COLLECTION", THE LANGUAGE OF THE TEXT ADDS LITTLE IF NO EXCITEMENT AND BEARS MORE RESEMBLENCE TO WHAT I IMAGINE TO BE BLAND AND REPETATIVE CASE NOTES.

MY FAVOURITE STORY AND MAIN REASON FOR BUYING WAS THE CHAPTER ON "JEREMIAH HANBURY'S REVENGE". A REAL GRUESOME TALE OF A 'CLASSIC' MOMENT OF MURDERING MADNESS WITH A CUT THROAT RAZOR (LITERALLY). THIS BROUGHT TO LIGHT THE FACTS OF LOCAL FOLKLORE AND FIRELIGHT DREADFULLS OF MAD JERRY HANBURY TOLD TO US KIDS FAR TOO MANY YEARS AGO TO MENTION HERE.

A WELL INFORMED BOOK THAT'S NOT JUST FOR US `YAM YAMS'!!
