Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths in the Cotswolds explores the dark history of this famously picturesque region of England. Nell Daeby's book examines a selection of shocking events in vivid detail. The cases she reconstructs come from all over the region- the cities, the towns and villages, the countryside. They show how Cotswold people carried out violent crimes regardless of their location in and upbringing from unemployed farmers' sons to educated surgeons, dark deeds were committed by individuals from all walks of life. They also reveal the criminal consequences of greed, madness, malice, carelessness and drink. Women were involved almost as often as men, as victims and as perpetrators one case concerns a woman who tried to kill a rival because she was jealous of her looks and, in another, a woman is burned at the stake in Gloucester for killing her husband. SELLING POINTS: Tales of murder, robbery, jealously, betrayal the dark side of human nature Crimes motivated by passion, greed and despair 50 b/w illustrations
