Description
Although we regard murder itself as the ultimate crime, most murders are unpremeditated acts committed in a moment of rage. But there others, note Roger Boar and Nigel Blundell, that are more sinister and intentional, motivated by greed, thrill, or perverse desires: "Myra Hindley was only 22 when she and her partner-in-crime Ian Brady were arrested for the notorious Moors Murders.... Young children had been tortured and mutilated in what are still remembered as some of the most horrifying and cold-blooded killings of the [20th] century." The book examines 35 such cases, from the compulsions of the Son of Sam to the almost casual shootings by Bonnie and Clyde, while sidebars recount the stories of other famous killers.
