Tales macabre and tales bizarre. All of them with murder in mind. This is another evocative and highly readable series of murder cases from criminologist Molly Whittington-Egan which follows on from her first volume of Scottish Murder Stories. Written in a frequently witty and irreverent style, these stories confirm that while the world has moves on, the human mind still deals with murder in the same old fashion with motives which have rarely changed over the years. The 19 tales are: 1. The Stockbridge Baby-Farmer. 2. I am Gall, 3. The Half-Mutchkin. 4. To the Lighthouse. 5. Mr Kello's Sunday Morning Service. 6. The Whiteinch Atrocities. 7. Death of a Hermit. 8. The Light-Headed Cutty. 9. The Postman Knocked. 10. Brutality. 11. Rurality. 12. The Northfield Mystery. 13. Blue Vitriol. 14. The Battered Bride. 15. The Babes in the Quarry. 16. The Poisonous Puddocks. 17. The Tram Ride. 18. The Tooth Fiend. 19. The Icing on the Shortbread.
