"A Century of Welsh Murders and Executions" brings together thirty-six murderous tales that shocked not only Wales but also made national headlines. This fascinating new book by crime historian John J. Eddleston covers every twentieth century murder committed in Wales which resulted in a judicial execution. They include the case of William Augustus Lacey, who killed his young wife with a razor in a fit of jealously at Pontypridd in 1900; baby farmer Rhoda Willis, the first woman to be hanged at Cardiff Prison, in 1907; Eric Lange, who brutally murdered the landlord of the Bridgend Hotel, Pentre, in 1904; and, Thomas Ronald Lewis Harries, who murdered both his uncle and aunt and buried them in a shallow grave on a farm at Llangynin in 1954. John J. Eddleston's carefully researched, well-illustrated and enthralling text will appeal to anyone interested in the shady side of Welsh history, and should give much food for through. It is the definitive book on capital crimes in the Principality.
