Swansea has a dangerous past. It was a seaport where the world came to trade, where the world confronted remote small-town Wales and Swansea confronted the unknown. The grim and bloody events in this book reveal the dark heart of Swansea's history. Local author Geoff Brookes takes the reader through each case in vivid detail, uncovering shocking stories of drunken brawls and poisonings, and plots fueled by revenge. Poor unhappy Daniel Guy, confused Thomas Nash and wretched Muriel Drinkwater are just some of the unfortunate characters that feature. Richly illustrated with archive and modern pages, this gruesome collection will fascinated anyone with an interest in Swansea's murky past.
