Unraveling the Shadows with True Crime Historian Adam Wood
Unmasking Coventry’s Dark Secrets is local true crime aficionado Adam Wood. He wears many hats – author, live streamer, and publisher. His Friday 13th Tour in Coventry, set against the backdrop of a wet autumnal night, offers a chilling exploration of Victorian Coventry’s sordid history.
In the heart of October, Adam Wood, resembling a detective from a bygone era, leads our intimate group through the seedy underbelly of pre-war murders. From poisonings to hangings, the tour delves into the macabre spectrum of the city’s past, even revealing the skull of a murderer archived in Herbert’s collection.
The tour, not a ghost walk, captivates with its atmosphere and storytelling. Despite the dreary weather, the experience, narrated by the engaging Adam Wood, is enthralling. The Friday 13th Tour is a must for those seeking an immersive journey into unmasking Coventry’s dark secrets.
“The Watchmakers Revenge” tour, centred around Chapelfields and Spon End, promises another thrilling exploration. Adam’s ability to make history come alive is commendable, making each tour a captivating experience.”
Wood, a former London graphic designer, traces his fascination with crime to his east-end upbringing and childhood tales of Jack the Ripper. His extensive portfolio includes a biography of detective Donald Sutherland Swanson, known for investigating the Ripper case.
This year, Adam’s projects abound, from the publication of “The Elephants of Coventry” to the creation of the bi-monthly magazine, “Crime Through Time.” Join him on Sundays for a live stream discussing crimes nationwide.
