Why do two young boys abduct, torture and kill a toddler? What makes a teenage girl plot with her classmates to kill her own father? Why does a child set fire to the homes of his classmates? We tend to think of children as incents, incapable of murder but their crimes can be some of the most horrific and terrifying acts committed. In this new book Carol Anne Davis explores the actions and motivations of thirteen killers aged between ten and seventeen. Well kwn cases including those of Mary Bell, Robert Thompson and John Venables are examined alongside historical case studies and lesser kwn crimes. Children Who Kill is an intelligent and moving account of the dark and troubled childhoods that lead to murder.
