Denham has been known to house some notable residents such as the late Cilla Black, Sir John Mills, Paul Daniels, Shane Richie and a fair few more to mention. However, the tiny village sadly has more of a tale to tell than that of housing celebrities, and it is a tale told and known by many people far and wide.

The Evil that Came to Denham is based on the true and gruesome tale of the Denham Massacre which took place in 1870 in Denham Village. The story is told from the point of view of the author's own father which adds credibility and believability to an incredible narrative. The macabre subject matter is sensitively treated and the tale is retold with empathy and feeling for the characters involved.

With suspense, intrigue and mystery, in addition to real life matters of family and work, The Evil that Came to Denham really does have something for everyone.

John Ulrich was born in Berkshire, where he grew up for the first three years of his life before moving with his family to Uxbridge, Middlesex.

His first passion is music and though he spent many years of his life working and being inside recording studios, he knew that one day he would set out to become an author and write the story of the Denham Murders.

    Well, I couldn't keep the book down, I kept reading and reading and reading. A captivating story, very well researched and creatively written. Leaving the reader wanting to hear more, what next, sad parts involving emotions yet creatively brought.
    Highly recommend. I hope to read another book from this writer. I hope to see this creativity act as a movie and be brought live on our screens.
    Thank you for sharing your family experiences and digging generational truths about a painful massacre that impacted generations and sharing it not only with your family but the world.

    This true story grips you from the beginning. It’s the telling of the story that makes you feel you are there, you feel the evil, the love and strength this family encountered. You will not want to put the book down until you finish it.
    I cannot wait for the second book to be published.
    An amazing author.

    Really enjoyed this story. Well put together I’d not heard of this history before. I lived near Denham for a long time. Well-written I thought. A bit bloody at times with details of mass murder.

  • Mrs W Cooper

    Was a very well-written book. It was set in the time that I grew up in the area, so seeing place names and pub names took me back to the 60s.

    A great book! I couldn’t put it down.
    I would recommend it to everyone who likes true crime with a twist.

    Read this cover to cover in 2 days, hair-raising read! If you want the history of the Denham Murders then you won't find a better account, from when they took place to the hauntings that followed.
