The Georgian era was perhaps one of the most shocking, gory and surprising in the capital's history. Londoners met some truly spectacular ends during it, including one unfortunate Fleet Street resident who fell into a sausage-grinder. With more than 100 contemporary illustrations, and including the French Revolution, the Napoleonic Wars and the Declaration of Independence, an anaconda attack at the Tower of London, the only assassination of a Prime Minister in British history and a murderer who advertised - successfully - for a new wife in "The Times", it will terrify, disgust and delight readers everywhere.
