Lincolnshire Murder & Crime

by Douglas Wynn The History Press

These tales from Lincolnshire's forgotten past are testament to the sinister side of the county's coastal resorts and inland market towns. Retold for a new generation are shocking stories of drunken brawls in towns, death from poison and jealous rages. Poisoned salmon sandwiches, pesticides, shotguns and amorous pork butchers all play a role in these gruesome accounts.

Mixing genuine historical documents with contemporary photography to show the scenes where these disturbing dramas were played out, Wynn's collection of true crime provides a mesmerising evocation of the past. It is sure to haunt the imagination of any reader with an interest in the darker history of Lincolnshire.

Douglas Wren has also written Lincolnshire Villains: Rogues, Rascals and Reprobates, available on this site.

'All cases are well written, readable and a useful historical record.'Lincolnshire Life, February 2010.
