From the dimly lit alleyways of Whitechapel that played host to the Ripper's darkest deeds to the well-to-do streets of Belgravia where Lord Lucan was last seen, "Murders of London" stalks the Capital's thoroughfares, uncovering the city's violent past.
Investigating the ordinary-looking roads and buildings whose gruesome pasts are all but forgotten, David long visits crime scenes and uncovers who did what to whom - and why.
What drove Joe Meek, pop's space-age pioneer, to attack his landlady?
When did Ruth Ellis conceive of her plan to shoot her lover dead?
How did Dennis Nilsen escape detection for so long? What emerges is an intriguing and enigmatic picture of London's underworld: a dark, frightening, yet strangely thrilling place.
