|Visiting the Fallen website
A new website, Visiting The Fallen has been launched by author Peter Hughes, who has written two books about fighting in and around Arras during the Great War – with a third volume to come. The books contain in depth coverage of numerous Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemeteries in the area, providing a veritable ‘Who’s Who’ of officers and other ranks who fell on this part of the Western Front.
The Visiting The Fallen website is intended to give the author the opportunity to expand on and provide additional information on some of the stories and characters featured in the books and talk about some of the many issues he was unable to cover in detail within the text.

| The London Underground Serial Killer
As seen in the South London Press.
Written by former police detective Geoff Platt, The London Underground Serial Killer is a thirty-year-old story of murder and cover up. Operating without motive or rationale, the prolific but little-known ‘Underground Killer’, Kieran Kelly, pushed sixteen souls to their deaths on the tracks of the London Underground, before vanishing back into the crowd. In a time of greater governmental control of the media, the case was hushed up, lest the residents of London be gripped by mass hysteria at the thought of a faceless killer lurking on the platforms of the Central line. The stories of the officers who were investigating the case are equally compelling, involved as they were in extreme, unusual and certainly unorthodox tactics.
These intricate strands of a murky underworld weave together to make a fascinating, if gruesome, story.
