Beschreibung

The twin fascinations of death and villainy will always hold us in their grim but thrilling grip. In Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths in Suffolk the chill is brought close to home as each chapter investigates the darker side of humanity in cases of murder, deceit and pure malice committed over the centuries in this part of East Anglia. From crimes of passion to opportunistic killings and coldly premeditated acts of murder, the full spectrum of criminality is recounted here. The traditionally rural nature of Suffolk creates isolated, inward looking communities with their own peculiar customs and practices. While this is one of the more endearing aspects of country life, it can also spawn narrow-mindedness and parochialism that leads to conflict - and occasionally even to death. In this collection of grisly crime stories Mark Mower takes us on a journey through the darker side of Suffolk folklore, with tales of poisoning, grave robbing, stabbing, shooting and larceny. On the way we meet highwaymen, cut-throats, murderous lovers, homicidal relatives, pirates and purveyors of human flesh. The dramas he describes are often played out in the most commonplace of circumstances, but others are so odd as to be stranger than fiction.
