Jack William Sweet relates shocking true events and personal stories which have terrified and horrified this seemingly placid county over the centuries. Spanning one hundred and fifty years, from early nineteenth-century witchcraft to the fear of spies and tragic deaths of the First World War, he recounts mysterious tales of the Highway Robberies of 1872, a Violent Death in Crewkerne, Bigamy, and the sinister murder of John Edney by his young wife Sophia. For many, Somerset evokes images of rural charm and serenity, a pastoral oasis of calm in the south west. However, in his latest book, Jack William Sweet shows a different Somerset. There is a shocking, surprising and sometimes strange aspect to the county of his birth, the land of legend, beauty and romance.
