Murder is rare. Rarer still are those killers who get away with it - but they are out there, walking our streets. Included in this in-depth book are some famous cases that generated enormous publicity, such as the disappearance of Susy Lamplugh and the murder of Jill Dando.
Despite extensive coverage in the press and the police following thousands of leads, somehow the killers slipped away.
Other cases are less well known, but are terrifying in their brutality.
Like that of Janet Brown, a nurse, whose naked body was discovered at her home on a quiet morning in April. Or mother-of-four Sandra Phillips, who was savagely beaten, strangled and assaulted at the sex shop she worked at.
Discover the shocking story of the brutal ritual killing of an unknown young African boy, given the name Adam by officers.
His torso was found floating in the Thames and the subsequent investigation revealed a cruel, dark underworld in modern Britain. For the first time, established true crime author Vanessa Howard brings together the cases that continue to perplex the British police and asks new questions to try to uncover the identity of the predators that still live among us.
