The Register of Death: v. 2: A History of Execution at Walton Prison, Liverpool. N° de ref. de la librería
Sinopsis: Welcome to the second instalment from the annals of Liverpool's Walton Jail. Here we bring the next twenty cases resulting in murder and subsequently death by hanging to the perpetrators of some of the most gruesome crimes on record. Each case has been carefully researched to bring you as comprehensive a description of the circumstances prior, during and after a murder, as is possible. What we cannot describe is the torment, distress and anxiety the victims, any witnesses and the investigating police officers must have suffered. This era covered by the second instalment saw the end of a number of noted executioners' tenure, such as John Ellis, and the beginning of the most famous of all, Albert Pierrepoint. Also at this time the winds of abolition began to blow. I hope you enjoy this second instalment of recorded hangings at Liverpool's Walton Jail, as I have done in presenting it to you. Hopefully this book will prepare you for the third and final instalment of cases, which many readers will still remember to this day.
