From the rear side cover: Brecon is an ancient town with a historic past that can be traced back to the Roman period. However, beneath its ancient streets and crumbling walls lay many a dark and foreboding secret. Murder, rape, robbery, transportation and even highwaymen have all played a part in the making of its historic past. This is the story of the men, women and children who frequented the various gaols of the town, some ending their lives on the gallows. With the closure of the County gaol in 1915, Brecon's period of local incarceration ended. In future all wrongdoers would be sent to Swansea gaol to await their fate...
