This is an engrossing, illustrated journey into true crime classics of the Victorian era. This second omnibus of storied treasuries of murder includes the famous double axe murder by Lizzie Borden; the mysterious drowning of the lovely Mary Rogers; the Bloody Benders, a family of murderous inn keepers; socialite Madeleine Smith who poisoned an inconvenient suitor; and the famous assassination of President Lincoln. Each true crime story includes a bibliography of research sources, presenting true facts about famous murders in an entertaining fashion.

Reviews

"What stands out is the tone of the work; this collection has a cheeky perspective. Readers who enjoy wry humor . . . The Treasury of Victorian Murder, Compendium II satisfies readers' insatiable curiosity with the macabre, represented by the continual fascination for stories about the Donner Party, Titanic, and Pompeii." —Laura Perenic, Voya
