Description

Death Ride From Fenchurch Street and Other Victorian Railway Murders offers a compelling account of the first murders to be committed on Britain's railways, at a time when the terrified screams of the victims were drowned out by the sound of the train's steam. This book vividly describes how passengers were helpless if attacked in the train's box-like compartments, preventing them from summoning help or stopping the train. The first murders to be committed on Britain's railways caused public outcry and much debate, forcing the railway companies to quickly introduce safety measures to protect vulnerable passengers. Death Ride From Fenchurch Street and Other Victorian Railway Murders follows the work of the police in their attempt to track down the murderers (in a time when there was little scientific help) and bring them to justice. Arthur and Mary Sellwood have written a book which is as sharp and potent as the tang from the bottle of smelling salts which a prudent Victorian lady would have carried when travelling on Britain's railways.

Author Biography
