    Victorian newspapers liked nothing better than a juicy murder to report and this collection of cases uses highly detailed accounts from local journals as well as contemporary illustrations and court transcripts to explore eight sensational cases from 19th century Bradford. Mostly born of domestic conflict or fuelled by alcohol, the murders' tragic circumstances allow a glimpse of the harsh living conditions and poverty endured by many in the industrial city.
