'Murder Trail' tells the fascinating stories of eight high profile murder or multiple murder cases through the eyes of the detectives who accepted the challenges of solving them.
In each case the detective had to sacrifice much - pushing themselves, their partners and their families to the limit - and by heavy-duty police work, inspiration and sometimes just plain luck, catch the criminal. Drawing on the words of real-life detectives, interviews with the detective's family and colleagues and where possible, with the murderer himself, as well as on archive material - news, police footage, surveillance recordings and interrogations - 'Murder Trail' provides a wholly revealing insight into the mind and method of the murderer. However, the focus is always on our central character - the detective - and in this book we look at the pressures on him from the media, his bosses, politicians, victims' families and not least the effect on his personal life. The result is a dramatic narrative of the crime and its investigation that is compulsive reading.
