Issue Cover

Master Detective  |  Feb-18  


The gruesome two-year killing spree of Peter Manuel, the Beast of Birkenshaw, will never be forgotten. Nor should it be. Arrogant and despicable in equal measure, the American-born Scot struck terror into the lives of those living in Lanarkshire in the late 1950s. He confessed to eight murders but almost certainly killed nine. Manuel regarded himself as a criminal mastermind but were the failings of the police investigation partly responsible for this inflated opinion? Read “Scotland’s Worst-Ever Serial Killer” in this issue for the full story.

Highlights of this issue include:

SISTERS’ KILLER DODGES NEEDLE: The Lyon sisters vanished in 1975, but four decades would pass before Lloyd Lee Welch confessed to murder

MACABRE METHODS OF MURDER: A tarantula in the bed, a rattlesnake in the mailbox, a killing machine in the garage…

KILLER SARAH AND THE DOG THAT DIDN’T BARK: How a teenage girl ended up on the gallows in Bristol

FROM PEEPING TOM TO MURDERER...TO THE ELECTRIC CHAIR

LETTERS OF LOVE AND DEATH : How Cassington, Oxfordshire, was rocked by the murder of the village beauty

OLD MURDER SOLVED BY NEW TECHNOLOGY: How DNA finally nailed the rape-killer of Brenda Dupont

THE LAST MAN HANGED IN IRELAND: Shocking murder story from 1960s Newry

KYLE KNEW HE HAD TO ESCAPE HIS TORTURERS – OR DIE: Tale of sadistic torture in a San Francisco suburb
