Sole Survivor by Elliott Leyton
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In this powerful book, noted anthropologist Elliott Leyton explores what it is that drives children to become killers, what turns innocence into deadly evil. The crimes he examines are especially disturbing, as they are perpetrated by children on their own families. Amongst the studies are the horrific case of Jeremy Bamber, who executed his parents, sister and her twin sons; Steven Benson, the heir to a tobacco fortune who left two bombs in his family's van and Marlene Olive who forced her compliant lover brutally to kill her adoptive parents. Read Sole Survivor and find out how the troubles that lie beneath the facade of middle-class life can cause such disturbing events to occur.
