Brought to Justice

(2012)
A Novella by

 
 
Murders and mayhem, fist fights and fornication, rapes, riots, gibbets, gaols and ghouls...
Based on his radio series broadcast by BBC Radio Newcastle , Roy Lewis looks at the culture of violence and crime in the Georgian and Victorian north of England. He considers the failings of doctors to discover the causes of death, the place of superstition and prejudice in ordinary lives, the part played by immigrant Irish and other 'foreigners' and the poisonous predilections of respectable and not so respectable ladies of the day.
Grave robbers and hangmen, burglars and wife-beaters mingle with lachrymose lawyers and corrupt coppers: in Brought To Justice Roy Lewis casts an amusing and amused eye over the ironies of life and death in these true life tales from the criminal world of yesterday.
