"Herefordshire Murders" brings together twenty-five murderous tales, some which were little known outside the county, and others which made national headlines. Herfordshire was home to one of Britain's most infamous murderers, Major Herbert Rowse Armstrong, who, in 1922, was convicted of the murder of his wife and the attempted murder of a fellow solicitor by poisoning in Hay on Wye. However, the county has also experienced many lesser known murders. They include the case of two-year-old Walter Frederick Steers, brutally killed in Leominster in 1891; eighty-seven-year-old Phillip Ballard, who died at the hands of two would-be burglars in Tupsley in 1887; Jane Haywood, murdered by her husband in Leominster in 1903; and, the shooting of two sisters at Burghill Court, near Hereford, by their butler in 1926. Nicola Sly's carefully researched and enthralling text will appeal to anyone interested in the shady side of Herefordshire's history.
