Deadly Derbyshire is a guide to murder and manslaughter committed across the full extent of the county, from the murder of Hannah Hewitt in 1742 to John Cotton’s killing in 1898.

In between, read about the ‘fiery’ circumstances of the death of John McMorrow, a farm tragedy at Stoney Houghton, killings for ‘pittances’ : three eggs and a sixpence; also discover unprovoked and wicked deeds as well as numerous suspicious deaths.

The book is based on extensive research of newspaper archives, uncovering a large number of cases never previously explored.

This compendium complements and accompanies other True Crime titles for Derbyshire published by Wharncliffe, including Foul Deeds books relating to Chesterfield and Derby.
