Two aristocratic brothers executed for forgery in 1776; a young woman who spurned the advances of a one-legged admirer, battered to death in her Camden Town home in 1926; a pornographer shot dead by the Krays in 1966 for having ‘too much lip’ … Take a terrifying day-by-day journey and experience hundreds of shocking real-life crimes – poisoning, throat slashing, stabbing and shooting all demonstrating the evil that men (and women) do. This volume features many infamous cases while also exposing some of London’s most violent crimes for the first time, and the punishments meted out to those responsible. Death Diary examines the most interesting, bizarre and audacious crimes to blight England’s first city.

Gary Powell brings his thirty years of experience as a detective (including anti-terrorism work at New Scotland Yard) to this catalogue of some of the most hateful and shocking crimes committed in the capital over the last 400 years.
