Chilling True Tales of Old LondonThe tales in this book recall the reality of life in 19th century London. In a city of reeking pestilence, five hundred people went weekly to an early grave - the victims of disease. The fears of violence and plunder were always in mind, with the evil-hearted infesting the narrow courts and alleyways. Villany and vice abounded and the highwaymen, housebreakers, cardsharp and counterfeiter hatched their plots in the capital's many alehouses.
