Quantity: 1 available


Winton takes a peek at a number of murders committed in Edinburgh throughout the centuries, beginning in 1566 with the killing of David Rizzo, and ending with the death of Mrs. Bertha Merrett in 1926. In between, we have the stories of John Kincaid, Lord Forrester, Archbishop James Sharp, Philip Stanfield, Sir George Lockhart, Captain J. Cayley, Robert Irvine, Captain John Porteous, William Begbie, William Howatt, the West Port murders (Burke and Hare, of course), Elizabeth Chantrelle and Jessie King. 128 pages, illustrated. A bit of slant, impressions, small ink notation ("Mon/22/4.00") to page 106 (doesn't interfere with anything, it's just aggravating as hell).
