Rotherham Murders - True Crime BooksSet in a social backdrop of recovery from two world wars, Margaret Drinkall's Rotherham Murders concentrates on killings that took place in and around the town during the first fifty years of the twentieth century. Most of her cases have not been written about in recent years, but are now investigated and told by a modern crime historian. Read about the brutal death of a policeman, a sensational 'body in a trunk' murder which resulted in Scotland Yard detectives coming to Rotherham and the very first wireless appeal for helping catching the culprit. Other sad and foul deeds include mothers killing their own children, an unusual tansvestite case, an early motoring crime and a gamekeeper's grim revenge. Not for the feint-hearted, these cases will both shock and astonish in equal measure, true stories set within one of South Yorkshire's most important industrial towns.
