This fascinating book includes the case of the infamous Dr Crippen, executed in 1910 for poisoning and dismembering his wife in Islington; Neville Heath, who was hanged at Pentonville Prison for the brutal murder of Margery Gardner in 1946; and Ruth Ellis, the last woman to hang in Britain after being found guilty of shooting her lover outside a pub on the edge of Hampstead Heath in 1955. John J. Eddleston's carefully researched, well-illustrated and enthralling text will appeal to anyone interested in the shady side of Britain's capital city, and should give much food for thought.
