Hundreds of dark and scandalous events have happened in Warwick over the centuries, from the murder of Piers Gaveston, the king's reputed lover, who was stabbed and then beheaded on Blacklow Hill, to the incredible histories of the Earls of Warwick. The Gunpowder Plot began near here, and the castle's horses were stolen afterwards when the plotters made a desperate attempt to escape the king's wrath. Containing martyrs, murderers and corrupt officials, crimes, ghosts, prize-fighters and eccentrics, you'll never see the town in the same way again!  Graham Sutherland has lived in Warwick for nearly fifty years. A retired police inspector, he is married with three adult children and grandchildren. After retiring as Warwick's town crier for twenty-eight years, he now works as a Blue Badge tourist guide specialising in Warwick and the Cotswolds as well as being a speaker and story teller. Graham writes a mixture of fiction and non-fiction books, many of which take place in Warwick.
