Softcover. Classic crime-reporting - a collection of on-the-spot stories, told with sensitivity, empathy and compassion. Alongside the stories of serial killers, mass murderers, bank robbers, and gaol-breakers, there are those about cruelty that masquerades as love and drives a battered wife to stab her husband to death, about the children who kill, about the anguish that drives fathers to murder their children as they sleep. Some of the names and crimes are well-known : Jaidyn Leskie, Brenden Abbott and the Bega schoolgirls. Other stories are lesser-known, such as that of a man dubbed 'the gentlest of axe killers' who, after 20yrs of nightmares, went back to kill the man who raped him as a child; fundamental Christianity gone wrong; drug dealing and murder among the gangs of Melbourne's west; and the murder of a vagrant by a group of children in Wagga Wagga. Illus. 354pp. trade size softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F.
