Bristol Murders by Nicola Sly

Book Description

"Bristol Murders" brings together numerous murderous tales that shocked not only the city but also made national headlines. Contained within the pages of this book are the stories behind some of the most heinous crimes ever committed in Bristol. They include the murder and suicide of a brother and sister in 1842; the tragic death of 10-year-old Mabel Price in 1897; the killing of Ada James in a fit of jealous rage by her fiance Ted Palmer in 1913; and the suspicious death of sexual deviant Cecil Cornock, which led to his wife Ann being charged with his murder before her subsequent acquital in 1946. Nicola Sly's carefully researched, well-illustrated and enthralling text will appeal to anyone interested in the shady side of Bristol's history, and should give much food for thought.
