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.
The book is 126 pages and is fully illustrated. The website price is £9 which includes postage and packing.
