Product Description

Publisher: Waverley Books

Author: Judy Hamilton

There are violent events and murders in the history of every country and Scotland is no exception. Scotland has its share of notorious and nefarious characters - from the almost mythological Sawney Bean and his cannibalistic family, Burke and Hare the body snatchers, and Jessie King the child murderer, to the still as yet unidentified 'Bible John".

Scottish Murders presents a catalogue of murders and murderers - instances where someone, somewhere has felt that death was the only answer. (pb)
