Swansea Murders


Swansea Murders was published in 2013 by the History Press and has been an extremely popular title. The book examines 25 different murders or manslaughters within Swansea, the earliest described  happened in 1730 and you may not be surprised to learn that it involved an argument between men in a pub. Stupidity is, of course, timeless.

The book ends with the disturbing story of the still-unsolved murder of Muriel Drinkwater in June 1946. It isn’t the only mysterious death. Perhaps the most perplexing of all remains the murder of Kate Jackson in Mumbles in 1929, the  inevitable culmination of a marriage between a congenital liar and a fantasist. It is a remarkable and gripping tale.

I no longer have copies of this title available for sale on this website. It is however still available from on-line stores, electronically and in bookshops.

There are also two additional and fascinating murder cases in my book Swansea in the 1950s. I have sold out of this title too, so it is  no longer for sale on this website but, once again,  is available in Amazon and in bookshops.
