From the Man They Could Not Hang to the Infamous Baby Murderer of
Torquay — Murders always Hit the Headlines! In this intriguing
compilation of murders and mysteries from darkest Devon, the author has
investigated the most notorious cases alongside some of the less
well-known tales, telling the stories in a clear and concise
easy-to-read style. Read about the murder victim who reappeared as a
ghost to name his killer; the innocent man who escaped the hangman's
noose by a whisker and then spent over 40 years in exile before
clearing his name; the mystery of the young bride who drowned
tragically just days after her wedding — was it an accident, or was she
murdered by her husband … or her parents? And read a murderer's own
account of how, in a fit of demented rage, he stabbed his wife to death
and then tried to kill himself!
