M. J. Trow: Foul Deeds & Suspicious Deaths in the Isle of Wight (UK 2009)
From the Publisher:
He throws light into the shadowy world of the smugglers, pirates and robbers who plagued the island's early history. He recalls the escape attempts of Charles I from Carisbrooke Castle, the mysterious loss of the Mary Rose and the Royal George, and the scandalous conduct of Lady Worsley. In vivid, sometimes shocking detail he reconstructs notable criminal cases, including the brutal murders that have marked the island's more recent past. Also he delves into the history of the island's three prisons - Albany, Parkhurst and Camp Hill - which have housed many of Britain's most violent criminals.
