Author: Jack William Sweet

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: a shocking, surprising and downright weird aspect to the county of his birth. Jack relates shocking true events and personal stories which have shaken and stirred the county over the centuries. From the terrible tale of poor Betty Trump (no relation), fatal food poisonings, a man mauled by a lion, the tragic story of the young man who was killed by a bale of hay, the slippery story of the giant eel that ate a farmer's crop, the report of a man found drunk in charge of a steamroller, ladies being attacked by stoats and the strange case of the man who died after lighting his pipe, this new collection of strange and shocking stories will leave readers open-mouthed in horror and disbelief.
