Murder Houses of Edinburgh

Jan Bondeson’s latest book “Murder Houses of Edinburgh” contains six sections documenting the murders which took place in the Old and New Towns, Leith and Portobello from the assassination of David Rizzio to the crimes committed since the beginning of the 21st century. The accounts are not only written in an easy to follow style, they are also packed with facts. Signed copies of the book can be obtained at Edinburgh Books at the West Port. The bookshop is situated not far from the area where Burke and Hare murdered their unfortunate victims. A painting, print and postcard collector, Jan’s books are guaranteed to contain illustrations and photographs conjuring up the atmosphere of the particular period when the ghastly crimes were carried out.
