The murder cases in this book are a mixture of classic narratives of jealousy, elimination and passion, now retold from new perspectives and with more research. The author also includes some little-known mysteries: three unsolved homicides from across the county, including the killing of the 'Barton recluse' and the enigmatic death of a young farmer in Gedney in which the dead man's dog appeared in court. In this chronicle of violent deaths and courtroom struggles the reader will find a new slant on some of the principal cases, with plenty of social and legal history added to enrich the stories. Lincolnshire Murders is a powerful and fascinating reappraisal of some of the most brutal and gruesome killings in the county's history.
