Bounder: n. Old-fashioned British slang a morally reprehensible person, unscrupulous, a cad. In this latest volume of Murder Tales, H. N. Lloyd turns his attention to those killers who used charm and good manners to ensnare their victims in intricate webs of lies, deceit, broken promises, bigamous marriages all eventually leading to some of the most bloody murders in the annals of crime. Murder Tales: The Bounders, examines ten chilling true tales of murder, including: George Joseph Smith: The infamous brides in the bath murderer, whose mesmeric charm led to his drowning three wives on their wedding nights. Neville Clevely Heath: The dashing RAF pilot and army officer whose obsession with sex led to his sadistically killing two women shortly after his demobbing from the army. John George Haigh: The Acid Bath Murderer, the man who the tabloid press labelled a vampire, the little dashing spiv who lived like a shark among the rich elderly ladies of an upper class hotel, watching and waiting, ready to strike. Lord Lucan: The famed case of the missing lord, the peer of the realm who fled after the murder of his children's nanny, and attempted murder of his wife. Did Lucan do it? Where did he go? Is he still alive? These and many more cases are explored in detail with Lloyd's customary wit and wordplay. Sink into a bygone world of suave sophistication, lounge lizards, forgotten charm and the golden age of British murder trials.
