150 Years of Island Madness, Mayhem and Manslaughter Paperback
by Keith Wilkinson
A beautiful island lying in the northern part of the Irish Sea, the Isle of Man was once a popular holiday destination. However, it also has its darker side. Manx Murders is a mysterious collection of murder cases committed on the island over the last 150 years, from the brutal murder of a spinster one dark night on a lonely track near Ramsey to the fatal stabbing of one Finnish prisoner by another. Using information obtained from newspapers, inquest records, and trial transcripts whenever these were available, each murder is described against the backdrop of events on the island at the time and has been carefully reconstructed.
