Murder and Mayhem in Swansea

On Saturday 12 October 2013 I am speaking in Swansea Central library at 2.00 pm. I have called the talk “How things do Prosper” and I will be talking about  6 murders. One is quite well documented – but I have uncovered some new and fascinating information about Thomas Allen who murdered the owner of the Gloucester Hotel in 1889. The other 5 are much less well known – but interesting and tragic. You really do need to know about poor Lily Maud Challenger.

Be seeing you
