Murder - the most appalling crime of all. It comes in many guises and is as diverse as the victims and perpetrators themselves. But no matter how horrifying, it fascinates as much as it repels.

In this updated edition of THE LAW KILLERS, journalist Alexander McGregor examines some of the country's most chilling cases and peels back the civilised layers of our society to reveal some of the horrors that lie beneath, including:

The Templeton Wood Murders - Was the same serial killer responsible and is he at last identified?
Little Boy Blue - The schoolboy with a continuing compulsion to kill.
Forgive Me Father - A trail of slaughter that spread to two countries?
Anything You Can Do - The country's most notorious father and son who killed again and again.
To Love, Honour and . . . Kill - The double wife-killer who thought he had committed the perfect murder . . . and nearly had.
