Hunting evil : inside the Ipswich serial murders by Paul Harrison( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The murder of five women in late 2006 shocked the nation and kept many of us glued to our TV screens, horrified by the unfolding tragedy. For the quiet town of Ipswich it was fifty days of fear and soul searching, from the disappearance of the first victim to the dramatic arrest of the lead suspect, Steve Wright." "Journalist Paul Harrison and Professor of Criminology David Wilson arrived in Ipswich just as the first body was discovered. Their on-the-scene access, and Professor Wilson's unique experience as a profiler meant that they were first to put forward the explosive theory that a serial killer was at large." "In Hunting Evil, Harrison and Wilson take the reader to the heart of the story. Both visited the sites where the killer disposed of his victims' bodies; both walked the red-light area of Ipswich; and both talked to those who were closest to the victims and to Steve Wright. They explore the reasons why someone will kill and kill again and, perhaps most important of all, explain how serial killers target the most vulnerable in our society, and what can be done to make our communities safer for everyone."--BOOK JACKET

Foul deeds and suspicious deaths around Northampton by Paul Harrison( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tales of violent death and villainy always hold us in a grim but thrilling grip. In Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths Around Northampton the chill is brought close to home as each chapter investigates the darker side of humanity in cases of murder, deceit and pure malice committed over the centuries in this part of the country. From crimes of passion to opportunistic killings and coldly premeditated acts of murder, the full spectrum of criminality is recounted, bringing to life the more sinister history of Northampton and the surrounding villages from the eighteenth century onwards." "For this journey into Northampton's bloody but neglected past, Paul Harrison has selected over 20 notorious episodes that give a fascinating insight into criminal acts and the criminal mind. He reinvestigates some of the most intriguing cases, introduces new evidence and questions verdicts that were reached many years ago. Among the cases are two old people who were bludgeoned to death for no apparent reason, the murder of a mistress and her child, a philandering salesman who faked his own death, a promiscuous woman who came to a cruel end, a shoemaker who brutally attacked his wife, and the disappearance of Lydia Atley whose remains were never found. These human dramas are often played out in the most commonplace of circumstances, but others are so odd as to be stranger than fiction." "Paul Harrison's grisly chronicle of Northampton's hidden' history - the history the town would prefer to forget - will be compelling reading for anyone who is interested in the dark side of human nature."--BOOK JACKET
