Sussex Murders by W. H. Johnson
Book DescriptionContained within the pages of this book are the stories behind some of the most notorious murders in Sussex's history. Based upon contemporary documents and illustrations, Johnnie Johnson re-examines some of the crimes that shocked not only the county but Britain as a whole. Among the gruesome cases featured here are the mystery man who shot his wife and three children in a house in Eastbourne, the Chief Constable who was bludgeoned to death in his own police station; the fearsome gang of smugglers who tortured and buried one of their two victims alive and threw the second to his death down a well; and the waiter who danced away the days while his lady friend's body lay mouldering in a trunk in his lodgings. All manner of murder and mystery is featured here, and this book is sure to be a must-read for true crime enthusiasts everywhere.
