Star rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Publication date: 7th July 2022

A beach read like no other.

Be prepared for a journey from where the land meets the sea, to where life meets death.

There is something sinister about a British seaside town. On the surface they’re all funfairs and breezy promenades. Yet dig a little deeper in the sand and you soon uncover an underworld of murder, madness and mayhem…

This official companion book to the long-running true-crime documentary series on CBS Reality, dives into some of the most extraordinary murder cases in Britain’s seaside towns.

I am fascinated by true crime and always have been but mostly the forensic and psychological side of it.

Murder By The Sea is made up of ten chapters, each a story about a murder that happened in a seaside town. Some of these in more recent days and some dating back to the 1950s.

It reads exactly like a documentary (this book is taken from one such documentary of the same name) with information on the towns, backgrounds to both victims and killers and quotes from the officers and doctors who worked on the cases. I did not want to put this down and surprisingly I'd only heard of one case. Another case though, I think will stay with me forever. Mathew Hardman, that's all I will say. Wow.

I found myself wanting to know more whilst reading and did have an extra little Google at some stories. 

If you are a true crime fan, this is for you.
