Some of the gruesome cases in this book are better known than others, such as the inexplicable shooting of his wife and two daughters by Lock Ah Tam in 1926 and the Gorse Hall murder in 1909, which still excites afictionados of true crime and those who like a good unsolved mystery. Others are less well known, including the mysterious murder of Mary Malpas in 1835 and the crime of Frederick George Wood in Bramhall in 1922, a classic example of the pointless murder, for little or no reward, while few outside the town have ever heard the tale of the 'Congleton Cannibal.' All manner of murder and mystery is featured here, and this book is sure to be a must-read for true crime enthusiasts everywhere.

Infamous Cheshire explores the darker side of this idyllic county, where murders in sleepy villages, royal scandals ancient and modern and the antics of showbiz personalities reveal that all is not as tranquil as it may seem. In his new book Bob Burrows digs deep into forgotten tales of villainy and crime, deceit and death, as well as throwing new light on more recent and well-remembered events - including the Great Train Robbery's connections with the county, Britain's biggest financial fraud, the IRA attack in Warrington, the plane that crashed in the centre of Stockport, and even the story behind one of Cheshire's roads - designated the most dangerous in Britain. Infamous Cheshire will enthral and fascinate anyone who would like to discover more about the unexpected history of Cheshire.
