Mad Frank's Britain by Frank Fraser
This title takes the reader on a tour of the country that no other tour guide could do. This is Britain as seen from the underworld: the sites of murders, the stories of killings and grand thefts that places record, the memories of gangsters long, and not so long, dead. In this book, Frankie looks at crime sites the length and breadth of the UK, from Glasgow and the Bible John killer, through Newcastle and the Sibbett murder, through Manchester and the double murderer Walter Rowland, and on to the Isle of Wight. Frank covers Britain as he takes us on a tour of prisons - and those he met inside them - that he spent time in. And, as crime is no respecter of borders, Frank also visits Dublin. All the while Frank details crimes that he personally knew about; famous crimes that were part of the stories that set Frank on his way; and crimes as yet unsolved, that Frank can shed his own light upon, based on his lifelong experience of crime.
