Heroes, Villains and Victims of Norwich is a collection of stories about some of the people who have helped to shape Norwich - including philanthropic industrialists such as J. J. Colman, notorious murderers such as William Sheward, and 'characters' such as Billy Bluelight, as well as stars in sport, art, music and literature.

Add in the nation's greatest maritime hero and its World War I heroine, the chilling stories of martyrs and the man who tried to get 'all bond men made free', and the uplifting stories of people who really made a difference, and you get a fascinating mix of what made Norwich tick over the last thousand years.

Bringing together countless memorable tales, this book would be a wonderful read for local history enthusiasts and residents of Norwich alike.

 


Reviews

From: Derek James, Norwich Evening News

(June 08): A cracking new book by a woman who is fast becoming one of our best-loved authors, Pam Brooks.

And she has really hit the spot with her latest offering, Heroes, Villains and Victims of Norwich, a fastinating collection of yarns about extraordinary characters.

There are the usual suspects - Kett, Nelson, Bignold, Cavell, but there are others that I'll wager you have never heard of.

And that is what makes this book stand apart. It's one of those books that makes you think: 'Well, I never knew that.'... Pam has unearthed fascinating facts about their lives that you will probably not know.
