Description

Surrey Murders is an examination of some of the county’s most notorious and shocking cases. They include the ‘Wigwam Girl’, Joan Wolfe, who lived in a tent built by a Cree Indian Soldier before being brutally slaughtered; the infamous stagging of Frederick Gold by ‘the Serpent’, Percy Lefroy Mapleton; the poisoning of the entire Beck family with a bottle of oatmeal stout, laced with cyanide; and the sailor butchered at the Devil’s Punchbowl, later immortalised in Charles Dickens’ Nicholas Nickleby. John Van der Kitse’s carefully researched, well-illustrated and enthralling text will appeal to all those interested in the darker side of Surrey’s history.
