Books

‘Famous Last Words’ collects a fascinating selection of destinies culminating in their often flamboyant yet always captivating, final utterances before shuffling off this mortal coil.

Revealed inside are tales of sangfroid bravery, astonishing ironies and overdue confessions often betraying grave miscarriages of justice, throughout British history.

Bio

Author-ChrisWood-WHT_edited.jpg

I am an author and researcher of all things grim. A morbid interest which was initially sparked through a paralysing fear of the UK TV show Crimewatch, and their eerily creepy reconstructions when I was far too young to have been watching them, has evoked a lifelong fascination into a subject often considered taboo by many.

 

I am proud to have had my first title published by Pen and Sword Publishers and hope to write many further instalments in the future.

I live in Northumberland, England’s northernmost county, and I enjoy exploring the countryside and walking with my wife and daughter.

I am also proud to write the occasional episode of this hugely popular podcast.

Reviews

If you are at all intrigued by a sociological compendium of true death events and how various people viewed death in their last moments, this book is definitely for you.

My morbid soul had a wonderful time reading Famous Last Words, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an enjoyable nonfiction that they can read in one gulp, or in bite-sized chapters.

Prepare for a book hangover, because once you start this book, you will not be able to put it down until you have finished the last sentence.
