Welcome to the Murder Mile podcast, a true-crime podcast and audio guided walk of London's most infamous (and often forgotten) murder cases, set within one square mile of the West End.
Episode Two: Double Murder at The Bus Stop Club is easily one of Soho's strangest murders, as what seemed to the Police like a simple double homicide, was anything but, and would typify how hard and short life can be as a Soho gangster.
