Unsolved East Anglian Murders

Unsolved crimes stir the dark side of the imagination. This is particularly true of the most heinous crime of all, the taking of another's life. in this gripping book Jonathan Sutherland and Diane Canwell use newspaper reports and court records to reconstruct over 20 of the most shocking murders of recent times that have baffled the East Anglia police. Among them are dreadful cases that caused a sensation across East Anlgia and are still capable of provoking powerful emotions - the senseless murders of April Fabb and Susan Long are probably the best known. the authors also describe in disturbing detail a series of cases that were less well publicized at the time and are less well remembered now, including those of Andrew Pilch, Natalie Pearman and Michelle Bettles. and they feature terrible crimes that are perhaps the most memorable of all, like that of the headless body of Cockley Cley, in which the identity of the victim and the perpetrator have never been discovered. Many of the murder stories that are recounted here are so recent that there is a distinct possibility that new evidence will provide a solution to them, but the chances are that most of them will remain open forever. They make fascinating reading.

"West and Idema's Monks, Bandits, Lovers, and Immortals represents a milestone in the reception of early Chinese drama in the West. Not only do the translations of eleven plays take precision, readability, and range to new heights, but the substantial yet accessible Introduction, together with a number of useful appendices, illustrations, and tables, make it the anthology of choice for courses in Chinese literature, world literature, and theater." --Patricia Sieber, Ohio State University --- "This magnificent collection of eleven early [1250 1450] Chinese plays will give readers a vivid sense of life and a clear understanding of dramatic literature during an extraordinarily eventful period in Chinese history. Not only are the eleven plays in this volume expertly translated into lively, idiomatic English; they are each provided with illuminating, scholarly introductions that are yet fully intelligible to the educated lay reader. A marvelous volume." --Victor Mair, University of Pennsylvania
