The historic city of Lincoln has a history going back to the Romans and a catalogue of crimes to match it. John Haig, the acid-bath murderer, was born in nearby Stamford and was imprisoned in Lincoln where he experimented on small animals to perfect his acid-bath techniques. The city also has its share of women who drowned unwanted babies in the nearby River Witham, and husbands who beat their wives to death. Then there is the poacher who shot and killed a gamekeeper in the woods near Lincoln, and the borstal boy who took a shine to the matron but battered her to death with a chair when she rebuked his advances. Combining meticulous research with evocative photography, the author provides a feast of crime to haunt the imagination of any reader interested in criminal and local history.
