A beautiful island lying in the northern part of the Irish Sea between England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, the Isle of Man was once a popular holiday destination. It is perhaps better known today for the TT motorcycle races held there, its tail-less cats and Manx kippers. However, with a population of around 75,000 it also has its darker side. "Manx Murders" is a mysterious collection of murder cases committed on the island over the last 150 years, from the brutal murder of a spinster one dark night on a lonely track near Ramsey to an equally savage attack on a widow in her garden in the busy centre of Douglas. Both murders remain unsolved to this day. The complex political situation that existed in an internment camp during World War I, which led to the fatal stabbing of one Finnish prisoner by another, is also covered. So too is the bizarre, seemingly motiveless murder involving two British Army officers in another camp during World War II. Using information obtained from newspapers, inquest records and trial transcripts whenever these were available, each murder is described against the back-drop of events on the island at the time and has been carefully reconstructed.
