Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


More Murderous Bolton is a gripping collection of fascinating and true tales of the one crime that still fills people with horror. From the author of Murderous Bolton, this second comprehensive volume continues with further accounts of murder committed through jealousy, greed, revenge, robbery and pure evil in and around the Bolton area. In this thrilling chronicle of spine chilling murders, Steve Fielding takes us through the decades of the twentieth century, recalling stories such as: the Darcy Lever canal murder; the one legged night-watchman; murder on the East Lancs Road; the brutal Farnworth child killer; the fairground strangler and other crimes - some never solved - that made the headlines over the years. Also included are the horrific tales of the death sentences passed on a mother and grandma during the dark days of World War Two, murder in the black-out on Bradshawgate, the disappearance of a young girl at New Bury, and, bringing us up to date, the cruel slaying of a young police officer. Despite its often disturbing details, murder is still a constant source of fascination. Illustrated with rare photographs, documents and maps this book will appeal to anyone with an interest in the darker side of the town's history. Judge for yourself the horror of these crimes, and remember, all the stories in More Murderous Bolton are true!
