Crime writer pens new book

Have your say

MURDERS committed across Derbsyhire during the 18th and 19th centuries feature in a new book written by a Chesterfield author.

Scott Lomax, who specialises in ‘true crime’ cases, launched Deadly Derbyshire on Sunday.

It features 50 murder and manslaughter cases, many of which have been written about for the first time.

Scott, who spent two years researching the crimes said: “This book features cases which had been lost in the archives.

They will fascinate anyone with an interest in crime and local history because many of these cases reveal a lot about society in the past.

The book is published by Pen and Sword Books and is available through Amazon.
