Hardback. This is the story of a horrific crime that shocked and baffled a nation. It was an act that was deeply disturbing, not just because of its senseless brutality, but also because of the unlikely nature of its perpetrator's guile and the astonishing alibi provided for him by his girlfriend. When Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman disappeared in August 2002, there followed the biggest manhunt Britain had ever seen, which attracted unprecedented amounts of media coverage. The little girls' distraught families and friends spent almost 2 weeks not knowing what had happened to them. As each day passed, their agony increased and it became more and more unlikely that Holly and Jessica were alive. Throughout the search and the media frenzy, one man stood on the sidelines, watching, knowing that the fate of the girls had already been sealed and that they had been murdered. So callous was Huntley, he even feigned concern, and gave television interviews expressing his sorrow at having been the last person to see Holly and Jessica. His girlfriend, Maxine Carr, appealed for their safe return. The behaviour of the couple baffled detectives, journalists and the public alike. After their arrest, millions wondered how Huntley could inflict such terrible suffering on 2 innocent girls and then act as if it hadn't happened. Or how Car could provide a fake alibi for her partner, throwing police off the scent of the guilty man. The full story of the caretaker who killed and the teaching assistant who tri8ed to shield him from justice. Illus. 279pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Review copy with loosely inserted slip. F. in F. dw.
