Jeremy Craddock is a journalist and author. Born in the Lake District in 1968, he worked for more than 20 years on newspapers and magazines in the north west of England. One of the biggest stories he covered was the Lady in the Lake murder case in 1997.
He now teaches multimedia journalism at Manchester Metropolitan University, where he also contributes to a media law podcast, Bang to Rights.
The Jigsaw Murders: The True Story of the Ruxton Killings and the Birth of Modern Forensics is his first book. It is a case that has haunted him since childhood as he used to live near the murder scene.
Jeremy now lives in Cheshire with his wife and two children. As well as buying more books than he could possibly read, he is also a lifelong Laurel and Hardy fan.
