Summary

Thing most terrifying thing about serial killers is that sometimes, they’re just like us, as the interesting facts in this true crime collection reveal. 
 
Even the most diabolical of serial killers was once someone’s child, someone’s spouse, someone’s parent, but somewhere along the line, something happened to send them off the rails on a descent into madness. 
 
Wisconsin serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer would have said he was just lonely, and that’s why 17 young men ended up dead at his hands. Never mind that he carried around a plastic bag to pick up road kill as a child – a huge harbinger of terrible things to come. 
 
The compilation of trivia in this serial killer true crime anthology goes beyond the familiar stories to give you a glimpse of some of the more horrifying aspects of people who become famous for acts of barbarianism that are unfathomable for most of us. 
 
By going behind the scenes, you’ll learn more about the monsters whose stories keep us awake at night, uncover the mundane hidden amongst the horrifying bits that make the evening news. 
 
These serial killer true crime moments are those you’ll want to read around the campfire on a moonless summer night. That’s if, of course, you’re planning on staying up all night. 
 
Sleep, if it comes, will be a nightmare.

    One Australian woman is hospitalised every three hours and two more lose their lives each week as a result of family violence. But for some women there is a punishment more enduring than injury or their own death.
     
     This book is a timely exploration into the evil done by vengeful fathers who kill their own flesh and blood in order to punish wives who have chosen to end abusive relationships.
     
    Focussing on seven different but equally harrowing cases of ‘spousal revenge’, author  Megan Norris draws on her own observations as a former court and crime reporter, examining the murders of thirteen innocent children who became collateral damage in callous crimes committed by angry dads whose real targets were the children’s mothers.
     
    From the harrowing 1993 kidnap and murder of three-year-old Kelly East in WA, to the chilling murder of Darcey Freeman whose dad hurled her from Melbourne’s West Gate Bridge in 2009, these stories highlight the chilling connection between intimate partner abuse and retaliatory homicide. 
     
    They show it’s not only mothers who are in danger when domestic violence turns deadly.
