Summary
Discover the Welsh city's history of crime with these true stories and photos. This book will introduce to you villains of all sorts-casual or calculating killers, murderous husbands and lovers, gangsters, robbers, poisoners, and suicides. There is no shortage of harrowing episodes in Cardiff's past, and this fascinating book recalls many grisly events and sad or unsavory individuals whose conduct throws a harsh light on the history of the city. Among the many shocking cases the author describes are: *the murder of a Welsh Protestant by an Irish Catholic that provoked rioting *the double life of a respectable widow poisoned with arsenic *the exploits of a "Jack the Ripper" killer in Cardiff's back streets *the throat-slashing revenge of the Cardiff Race Track Gang *the still-mysterious wartime murder of Alice Pittman *the case of the Somalian sailor arrested for the brutal slaying of an elderly shopkeeper *the demise of Granville Jenkins, who was cut to ribbons by a machete *the accidental-or deliberate?-electrocution of Mrs. Darling This chronicle of Cardiff's hidden past and the history the city would prefer to forget is compelling reading for anyone interested in the dark side of human nature
