COUPLES WHO KILL
Written by
CAROL ANNE DAVIS


As macabre as this is, the fascination of crime lies in the depravity of the human mind. Carol Anne Davis, author of Women Who Kill and Children Who Kill, has continued the series in superb – if blood-chilling – style with her latest foray into the True Crime field, Couples Who Kill, to further enforce this point as she takes the reader into the darkest recesses of the psyche.

 


Couples who kill comprise only twenty per cent of killers, but they often murder serially and are responsible for particularly inhumane deaths. Sadistic friends, psychotic sisters and an increasingly pathological mother-son team are amongst those profiled in this exploration of the world's most deviant duos. There are infamous British cases, such as the Moors Murderers and the Wests, as well as many equally disturbing but less well-known ones. In the third of this series, which focuses on the psychology of murderers, Couples Who Kill explores the formative influences of these killers and their deadly dynamics.

Comprising of thirteen in-depth case studies and exclusive interviews with experts and one of the Wests’ surviving victims, Couples Who Kill provides an unequalled study of this phenomenon without ever being self-indulgent, as the facts are laid down without bluster. In fact, the thing that is most striking is the “normality” of many of the subjects to the outside world, as shown with the statistic that one child per week dies in Britain at the hands of a parent being relegated to sub-headings in local papers.

Informative, compelling and deeply disturbing, Couples Who Kill is a must for all readers of True Crime and offers insights to the worlds of murderers that can rank alongside anything available on the market today.
