True crime writer Scott Lomax presents a guide to murder and manslaughter committed across the whole of Derbyshire, from the murder of Hannah Hewitt in 1742 to John Cotton's killing in 1898. Lomax's researches in newspaper archives have uncovered cases never previously explored, including a fight over three eggs which resulted in a killing, numerous children dumped in rivers and canals, unsolved murders and the probable serial killer, Elizabeth Berry.
