Blood and Granite

Blood and Granite is a chronicle of the most notorious homicides committed in Aberdeen over the last hundred years. Written by Norman Adams, a journalist who reported on many of the chilling crimes he now recalls so vividly, it is compelling reading for those who are too young to remember — and those who cannot forget. All are human tragedies from the dark side of life, including: • The grudge that ended in death in an East End pub when butcher James Harrow brutally stabbed two workmates in 1901. • The grisly discovery of a woman's arm on the Torry shore in 1945 that signalled the start of a mystery which to this day remains unsolved. • The tragic love affair that led to the gallows in 1963 — the first hanging in Aberdeen for 106 years. • The double life of brilliant scientist Dr Brenda Page of Aberdeen University, battered to death in her flat in 1978. Her murder remains unsolved. • The bar
