(Jack W Sweet)  A collection of fifty tales of murder, mayhem and mishap, ranging from Mary Adlam killing her drunken husband in Regency Bath, a test flight crash at Yeovil and mine disasters in the Somerset coalfields, to the missing ballot papers of Langport in the parish council elections of 1894 and the Reckleford School riot of 1921.

Together, these stories present a vivid picture of Somerset at its most shocking, surprising and strange.
