Summary This gripping volume covers two centuries of murderous doings in Brighton portrayed in fifteen vivid case histories. All the crimes took place within the town except two, where the victims were prominent Brighton citizens travelling on business. The accounts are arranged in an unusual yet logical manner, namley by theme. The categories comprise trunk murders, poisonings, child murders, killings over nothing, deaths suffered on journeys, and provocation, infidelity and lust. Surprisingly, no single volume devoted to murders in Brighton has ever appeared before. This is extrordinary considering.
