Behind the shutters of Sweeney Todds barbershop on the crime-ridden Fleet Street of late-18th-century London, the man who advertised Easy shaving for a penny was in fact involved in a spree of robbery and murder unique in the annals of history.MoreBehind the shutters of Sweeney Todds barbershop on the crime-ridden Fleet Street of late-18th-century London, the man who advertised Easy shaving for a penny was in fact involved in a spree of robbery and murder unique in the annals of history.

Delving beneath the myth to uncover the real-life demon barber who terrorized London for 15 years, Peter Haining traces Todds childhood, early crimes, and imprisonment in Newgate (where he acquired a smoldering hatred of society along with a barbers skill)- he describes how Todd committed his crimes with the assistance of the enterprising Mrs. Lovett, who baked the grisly remains of his murder victims into the meat pies that were her stock in trade- and he recounts how the cut-throat barber was finally brought to justice.

The book also examines Todds long life in literature and on the stage, including, most recently, Stephen Sondheims glorious award-winning musical. B&W illus.
