Monmouthshire may have a reputation as a quaint idyllic and rural county but scratch the surface and you’ll find a past riddled with scandal, strife, and murder most foul. In ‘Monmouthshire Murders and Misdemeanours’ Tim Butters digs up and throws new light on criminal cases long since buried, but still capable of making our modern minds recoil in horror.


Amongst these tales of terror and woe you’ll find the wretched account of a child who callously murdered other children with the calculated ease of a born psychopath, a penniless and alcoholic prostitute butchered by the hand of a disease riddled madman, a wandering tramp with a penchant for opportunistic butchery, and a Spanish sailor who killed an entire family on a whim.


This hellish history also contains tragic tales from those condemned to the desolate confines of the workhouse, the delirium of the asylum, the despair of the prison cell, and the unforgiving grasp of the hangman’s noose. So step right this way for an unnerving and chilling tour of Monmouthshire’s brutal and bloody past. Dare you take a walk on the dark side of this fair county?
