About this product
- DescriptionWhy do some people cross the threshold from rational behaviour to cold blooded murder? What could motivate a mother to kill her own children? How could a man kill his own pregnant wife and toddler with a spear gun? How could someone kill a political rival - and think they could get away with it? All these questions and many more are answered in this collection of the most monstrous cases to hit the headlines in Australia in recent times. Well-kwn journalist and author Malcolm Brown goes into cases such as the Swtown murders; the killing of Dr Margaret Tobin, Maria Korp, Melbourne's society murders, and the frightful case of Kathleen Folbigg killing her own four young children. These are t only gripping accounts of the terrible crimes themselves - but they look into what would lead someone to commit them.
- Author BiographyMalcolm Brown is well-known as a journalist with the Sydney Morning Herald, where he has covered courts, royal commissions and coroners' inquests (as well as other areas) for more than thirty years.
