Crimes of the Century: Britain's Most Depraved Killers, Paperback Book

Crimes of the Century: Britain's Most Depraved Killers Paperback


Drawing on the Daily Mirror's outstanding archive and Haynes Publishing's wealth of experience, this book continues the successful 'Crimes of the Century' series.

Claire Welch has been given access to thousands of hours of investigative journalism to discover just how depraved some of the killers across the decades in Britain have been.

This book takes a look at notorious murderers including Jack Huxley, who killed a family relative after watching hard core pornography for hours on end, Ian Huntley, the Soham murderer who killed two innocent schoolgirls and Robert Black, the serial killer who murdered many known, and many suspected victims, alongside other depraved killers.

What drives someone to kill? Do they understand right and wrong? What happened to these killers' moral codes? Just how do these perpetrators blend into society before they are caught?
