Detective Chief Superintendent Ian Hunter of the CID, retired, is a good old fashioned copper. He has been at the heart of the investigations into some of Lancashire’s most notorious murders, including the ‘Handless Corpse’ Case, the ‘Black Panther’, and the ‘Mad Dog of Pudsey’. In this revealing book, Detective Hunter tells us how, in these and other hideous murders across the county, the perpetrators were finally brought to justice. Modern science can certainly help to convict a criminal, but as these accounts show all too clearly, without instinct, observation and sheer bloody hard work at the start, no case would ever be solved.
