Dr. Katherine Ramsland wades through the heavy fog surrounding the?Moors Murders?: a series of high-profile child killings committed by Scottish sadist Ian Brady and Myra Hindley. Kim Cresswell churns the stomach with her unbelievable account of the atrocities committed by Fred and Rosemary West Carol Anne Davis looks at one of the greatest abuses of police power in English history: the entrapment of Colin Stagg for the 1992 ripper-style murder of blonde beauty Rachel Nickell on Wimbledon Common. Meanwhile, the real killer, Robert Napper, was already confined to Broadmoor asylum for the 1993 evisceration murder of Samantha Bisset and the rape and deadly suffocation of her infant daughter. To top it all off, Edgar-Award winning author Burl Barer makes his SKQ debut, lending his highly original voice to an intriguing re-examination of the murders ascribed to ?Yorkshire Ripper? Peter Sutcliffe, and the phenomenon of homicidal fame. Robert J. Hoshowsky, Aaron Elliott, and Kim Cresswell also look at three comparably notorious historical London slayers in their pieces on creepy old John Christie, ?Acid Bath Vampire? John George Haigh, and Jack the Ripper suspect and bride poisoner George Smith. SERIAL KILLER QUARTERLY-Lee Mellor
