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.

This is Mamie Stuart. Murdered and dismembered in 1919. Her body was  discovered in Brandy Cove in 1961.Mamie 2 071161

There are 25 cases in the book. Some you may have heard of – others will be new to you. All are set in Swansea of course, though we do travel to Felindre for the story of the remarkable Murder Stone, which parallels the one in Cadoxton (pictured below)

If you would like to read a sample chapter from the book, you can find the terrible story of Guistina Macari on the blog. She was three years old when she was horribly murdered in 1941 and we should never forget her.
