Ravaged by riots, vice and violence, nineteenth-century Aberdeen was very different from the city we know now. Danger lurked around many corners. Truculent fishermen rioted on the coast. 'Resurrection men' snatched dead bodies for anatomists' experiments. Children became career criminals. Railway navvies created havoc with their drunken 'randies'. Respectable people were well advised not to enter streets like Shuttle Lane, which harboured thieves, whores and murderers. And famous fraudsters lived their lives deceiving others, such as the notorious Mrs Gordon Baillie, who beguiled victims from Melbourne to New York. In Fishermen, Randies and Fraudsters, Malcolm Archibald reveals historical Aberdeen's sordid underbelly. And he also uncovers the heroic efforts of the town sergeants and infant police force that attempted to keep the city under control as they nobly battled crime in nineteenth-century Aberdeen and the North East.

In the nineteenth century, Scotland was renowned as a land of misty glens, engineering innovation and inventive genius. But it was also the home of brutal murder, terrifying riots, cruelty to children, bank robbery and acid attacks. Women as well as men were capable of horrendous acts, and crime could strike anywhere: at home, on the road and even at sea. From the Borders to the Northern Isles, crime was never far away. Edinburgh, with its reputation for polite decorum, was also the scene of poisoning and savagery; the dark streets of industrial Glasgow and Dundee harboured thieves and muggers; and the villages of coast and country hid wild men and vicious women. Bloody Scotland exposes some of the crimes, both remembered and forgotten, that rocked Scotland in those lawless times and reveals not only the criminals who perpetrated them, but also the law enforcers who fought hard to maintain order against a rising tide of crime.

It's 1806 and the Napoleonic Wars are raging across Europe as engineer Jack Tarver and his new wife Bethany set off for Malta, tasked with building a new road to a harbour of refuge. However, their voyage is anything but plain sailing as they battle the French and help to rescue a British spy, Mr Dover, from captivity. When they finally arrive on the island they find bitter opposition to their plans - before discovering that they are occupying a house with a dangerous secret. When Jack is attacked one day, Dover explains that the Knights of Malta have hidden a treasure from Bonaparte and that the key is to be found in Jack's house. While the British want the treasure to help finance the war against the French, the knights want to protect it for the Maltese people. And so Jack and Bethany find themselves caught up in a web of intrigue as the race to find the treasure begins.

Now world famous for football and music, in the nineteenth century Liverpool had a very different reputation. One of the greatest ports in the world, and Europe's western gateway to the Atlantic, Liverpool's emerging wreath and prosperity brought with it a huge influx of crime to the streets, and a new breed of men whose job it was to try to enforce law and order on the increasingly unruly city streets. Much of Liverpool's crime was based around the docks and the sea. Crimps and runners waited to lure the homecoming seamen to dens of immorality where over 2,000 known prostitutes and rot-gut spirits would separate them from their money and their liberty. Tough, hardcore sailors - known as Packet Rats - caused mayhem at sea while in the stinking alleys around Scotland Road, the High Rip gang wielded vicious power. Liverpool in the nineteenth century was a place full of stories of assault, robbery and murder as well as poachers, footpads and highwaymen who preyed on the unwary. Against this this tide of lawlessness stood men like Constable Casey of the Liverpool police, who disarmed two pistol wielding terrorists, and his police colleagues who not only dealt with the day to day crimes but more unusual crimes such as bombs in the town hall and redcoats rioting in the street. Liverpool was, without doubt, a challenging and exciting place to live and work in the nineteenth century as the battle for the streets between the criminals and lawmen raged on.
