Rate this:
Victorian Murders contains all the most shocking cases of murder from Victorian true-crime classic Mysteries of Police & Crime. The author, Major Arthur Griffiths (1838-1908), was Inspector of Her Majesty's Prisons and deputy governor of Millbank and Wormwood Scrubs, and was most famous for his association with the Whitechapel case. He knew many of the greatest detectives of the day, and, as a result, was the first to describe in print the three men - Kosminski, Ostrog and Druitt - that the police suspected of being 'Jack the Ripper'. This fascinating volume also includes every other case of note in the annals of Victorian crime. From Elizabeth Brownrigg, who whipped her domestic into an early grave, to the horrific tale of Henry Wainwright, who attempted to transport the dismembered body of his lover across London, it is not for the faint of heart. Richly illustrated, including early sketches by Arthur Rackham, and filled with countless tales of poisoners, sadists, serial killers and cases that have never been solved, this is a book that no true-crime fan should be without.

If you like your murder mysteries to be true tales, read the memoirs of Major Arthur Griffiths (1838-1908), Inspector of Her Majesty's Prisons and known for his association with the White Chapel case. Not just "Jack the Ripper," but numerous murders are retold herein.
