Houses of Death

Horrific Secrets Behind Closed Doors

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Every neighbourhood has one ... a notorious "murder house" which was once the scene of a brutal and bloody crime. If the walls of number 25 Cromwell Street had ears, what horrifying acts would they have overheard during the occupancy of serial killers Fred and Rose West? Brutal torture sessions and grisly murders were a regular occurrence. Even after the evidence has been removed and the perpetrators imprisoned or executed, an aura of horror, fear and disgust can linger on for decades. Houses of Death provides an incredible insight into ordinary homes and institutional buildings that have played host to extraordinary events. It explores the infamous buildings, the murderers and victims who called them ‘home’, as well as the bizarre and bloody events that took place behind their closed doors.

Customer Reviews


Certainly a good light read. Was a little bored about so many prisons being listed, was also disappointed that it did not go too much into current histories about houses after there previous histories.


Good read. However I would have liked some pix to go with the stories. Flicking between safari and book to get a perspective was a bit frustrating. But apart from that great book :-) a++++
