The Murderer of Warren Street : The True Story of a Nineteenth-Century Revolutionary EPUB
A DAILY EXPRESS BOOK OF THE YEAR
REVOLUTIONARY. CONSPIRATOR. JAIL-BREAKER. FUGITIVE. DUELLIST. RADICAL. AND KILLER.
ON 8 December 1854, Emmanuel Barth lemy visited 73 Warren Street in the heart of radical London for the very last time. Within half an hour, two men were dead.
The newspapers of Victorian England were soon in a frenzy. Who was this foreigner come to British shores to slay two upstanding subjects? But Barth lemy was no ordinary criminal...
Marc Mulholland reveals the true story of one of nineteenth-century London's most notorious murderers and revolutionaries. Following in Barth lemy s footsteps, he leads us from the barricades of the French capital to the English fireside of Karl Marx, and the dangling noose of London's Newgate prison, shining a light into a dark underworld of conspiracy, rebellion and fatal idealism.
The Murderer of Warren Street is a thrilling portrait of a troubled man in troubled times - full of resonance for our own terrorised age.
