Murder most foul – in 19th century Warrington


A NEW ebook written after extensive research lifts the lid on life, crime and death in 19th century Warrington.
Julia Joyce decided to write “Warrington Murders and Misdemeanours” after becoming interested in the link between fictional and factual 19th century murder while taking an MA in English at the University of Reading.
The book takes a quick step through the 15th and 18th centuries before lingering in 19th century Warrington, a time of increasing incidents of murders and misdemeanours in the town and surrounding area.
The stories give a detailed account of the trials, or tribulations, of those who were escorted through the doors of the formidable Warrington Bridewell, but also reveal a little glimpse of what life was like in the town during a time of industrial development and population growth.
Julia said: “All the facts in the narrative have been very carefully researched and all dialogue has been taken from contemporary trial and newspaper accounts.
“Whether your interest is true crime or local history, there is hopefully something here to interest you.”
Julia says she is particularly thrilled to learn that some family members of the people involved in some of the stories have read her account of the events.
The ebook is available from Amazon Kindle at £1.99 and more details are available at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Warrington-Murders-Misdemeanours-Julia-Joyce-ebook/dp/B015ZXO52K/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1443701712&sr=1-1&keywords=warrington
