Valleys of Death:
The gripping stories of ten brutal killings in the Wharfe and Aire valleys between 1905 and 1966

Paul Langan

An account of ten violent deaths – eight murders and two manslaughters – which took place in the Wharfe and Aire valleys in West Yorkshire. Some were particularly shocking, like the unsolved sex murder of a young woman in Ilkley, the stabbing of his three children by a policeman in Otley, and the killing of Elizabeth Todd, decapitated in broad daylight. The author’s meticulous research, including interviews with local people, has produced a fascinating book about the darker side of the West Riding.
