An illustrated tour through the dark story of our fascination with murder, with renowned historian Lucy Worsley. Lucy has covered the history of this very British obsession in a book and BBC TV series. Here she shares its secrets and explores the history of this phenomenon in forensic detail, examining not only the crimes themselves but also how murder became a form of middle-class entertainment through novels, plays, artefacts and the press. From a Regency serial killer to Agatha Christie, this is the story of how crime was turned into art.

Lucy is Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces, she is an hugely popular writer, broadcaster and speaker. Her recent TV series includes *Lucy Worsley: Mozart’s London Odyssey* , *Six Wives with Lucy Worsley*, and *American History’s Biggest Fibs with Lucy Worsley*.
