Liverpool has a deeply chequered past. As the second city of the Empire, she was a leading light in the influential story of Victorian Britain. This northern metropolis has thrived as a maritime port and has been home to a vast melting pot of people from all over the works. Their personal stories have shaped the local landscape for generations, but many of the more unsavoury tales have largely lay forgotten or have been quietly swept under the rug. This book lifts the lid on those darker deeds and brings to life some of the more insalubrious events from Liverpool's past. Featuring a panoply of true tales, Liverpool: A Macabre Miscellany is sure to invoke sensational intrigue, curious fascination and extraordinary surprise as you discover what really went on behind history's closed doors.
