Contained within the pages of this book are the stories behind some of the most notorious murders in Leicester's history. From the brutal murder of John Paas in 1832 -- whose killer became the last man in England to be gibbeted -- and the poisoning of a 70-year-old widow by two young men, to the fatal shooting of a young woman in 1919 -- a case which was known as the "green bicycle murder" and was to become one of the most fascinating murder cases in legal history -- this is a collection of the most dramatic and interesting criminal cases that have taken place in Leicester between the mid-1800s and the 1950s. This carefully researched, well-illustrated, and enthralling text will appeal to anyone interested in the shadier side of Leicester's history.
