Book Synopsis

Most Australians are murdered by someone they know. Usually by someone in their own family.

Killer in the Family explores more than twenty cases where families have been torn apart by murder.

  • A festering resentment by a spurned husband turns into the tragic downing of four children.
  • A violent stabbing in a mother’s past, and she grows up to murder her four babies.
  • Two sons inexplicably kill their mothers.
  • A de facto husband remorselessly beats a five-year-old until the child’s traumatised body gives out.
  • Spouses turn to hitmen to solve their domestic problems.

Brutal, callous crimes by the ones who are meant to care the most.
