Rate this:
Over the centuries North London has witnessed literally thousands of murders: those included within the pages of this book have shocked, fascinated and enthralled the public and commentators for generations. From Britain's first railway murder, a case that turned on the evidence provided by a distinctive style of hat, to the appalling story of two Islington woman convicted after 'disposing of' babies in their care, these are crimes that both horrified and captivated the public. No volume covering the murders of this part of London would be complete without an examination of the Crippen case; the name of Frederick Henry Seddon, hanged for poisoning Miss Eliza Barrow, is now less well known, although for several decades his waxwork effigy was a popular exhibit at Madame Tussaud's Chamber of Horrors and his story is an extraordinary one. Among other cases included here, North London Murders also re-examines the crimes of serial 'bride-killer' George Joseph Smith, the tragic story of Ruth Ellis and David Blakely, and the killing of Joe Orton by Kenneth Halliwell.
