BRITISH KILLERS - VOLUME 4 This book tells the story of 9 vicious crimes, and the events around them, which took place in the UK, and captured the attention of the British media and public at the time. *Nicholas Vernage - Cold Blooded Cop Killer When 26-year-old Nicholas Vernage was released from Wandsworth Prison in 1991, going straight was the last thing on his mind. Wi BRITISH KILLERS - VOLUME 4 This book tells the story of 9 vicious crimes, and the events around them, which took place in the UK, and captured the attention of the British media and public at the time. *Nicholas Vernage - Cold Blooded Cop Killer When 26-year-old Nicholas Vernage was released from Wandsworth Prison in 1991, going straight was the last thing on his mind. Within a couple of months he had returned to his life of crime with a vengeance - and had brutally stabbed to death three innocent people. *House of Horrors When police began digging up the back garden of 25 Cromwell Street In February 1994, the whole world was rocked by the horrific discoveries that revealed the shocking secret lives of depraved serial killers Fred and Rose West. *Sons of Evil The sudden disappearance of a wealthy married couple from their Jersey home read much like an episode from the BBC detective series, Bergerac. But this was a real-life murder mystery, and one that would run for nearly seven years until the police finally brought it to a close. *The Hankly Common Murder When the battered and rotting body of a young woman was discovered in a shallow grave on an army training ground in 1942, detectives and forensic experts quickly established how she was killed. But finding the murder weapon - and the murderer - proved far more difficult. *The Bamber Family Massacre It seemed an open-and-shut case. Four members of the middle-class family had been killed in a fit of madness by their beautiful adopted daughter, who then killed herself. Only the handsome son was left, grieving. *Body Snatchers - Burke and Hare There were never enough bodies for Dr Knox's anatomy class. Not, that is, until grave robbers Burke and Hare went into the wholesale murder and delivery business. *The Death of Tony Maffia It was a perfect robbery! 120 safe-deposit boxes in a vault in Stratford were rifled in a military-style operation that went like clockwork. Better still, there would be no list of the valuables stolen to help the police, as the owners of many of the boxes were believed to be crooks themselves. For Tony Maffia however, it was the biggest mistake of his criminal career. *Death of an Informer When the mutilated body of a middle-aged man was found on Clapham Common the police soon concluded that he had been murdered during a robbery. But had he really been killed for being a police informer? *The Red Mini Murder It looked like a tragic accident. A couple driving home after a night out, perhaps having had too much to drink, had lost control of their car and hit a tree. It's an all too common occurrence - but on this occasion the police were not convinced that everything was quite as it seemed.

    Interesting stories I think I have read all of Guy Hadleigh's books, and he is one of the authors that I download as soon as I learn a book has been released. The true crimes covered in this volume all occurred in the U.K. Some I had read about before, but I like the way this author tells a story, so it wasn't a chore to refresh my memory.

The true crimes covered in this volume all occurred in the U.K. Some I had read about before, but I like the way this author tells a story, so it wasn't a chore to refresh my memory. There are some family murders here, which are doubly tragic because these often include young children. The murders are generally quite brutal, and the killers often get no return on their hard work except a life behind bars. Sometimes the killer makes ridiculous mistakes, even with intricate planning. As my mother used to quote, "Be sure your sins will find you out." 13

    Captured Killers This was my first book by Guy Hadleigh. It is number 4 in the Horiffic True Crime Stories from the UK. Brutality, serial or spree killings always seem like an American phenomena, but Mr Hadleigh demonstrates it certainly is not. While I enjoyed reading his account of the capture of these murderers, and appreciate his focus on the victims, sometimes it seemed a bit repetitive. Hadleigh didn't just focus on serial killers, he portrayed several different types of murderers. It made Captured Killers This was my first book by Guy Hadleigh.

Hadleigh didn't just focus on serial killers, he portrayed several different types of murderers. It made for interesting reading, but I'm going to have to pull out my map of the United Kingdom. I felt lost a lot of the time as to just where the crimes were being committed.

    Great as usual. This is the fourth instalment of these books and I couldn't say anything bad about any of them so far. Some of the stories of the crimes in the books I have read or heard about before but this didn't matter. I'm enjoying making my way through these and the details are really good regarding each crime committed. Great as usual.
