Synopsis

How can people cross the line between rational behaviour and cold blooded murder? How could a mother kill her own child? How could a man kill his pregnant wife and toddler with a spear gun? Could parental pressure provoke a student to kill his entire family? And how could anyone think they could get away with assasinating a political rival? COLD BLOODED MURDER is a chilling look at the facts around some of Australia’s worst murder cases – and offers insights into the men and women who committed the crimes. The accounts range from the assassination of John Newman to the bodies in the barrels in Snowtown from the calculated killing of Dr Margaret Tobin to the bloody slaying of Frankfurt Arkell from Kathleen Folbigg's murder of her four babies to the dead woman in the boot - the Maria Korp case and from the Wales-King murders in Melbourne to the Sef Gonzales' slaughter of his parents and sister. In this book, Malcolm Brown and other award-winning journalists from around Australia takes us deep into the minds of some notorious killers - and show how sometimes even a simple chain of events can lead to murder.
