Reviews

"A comprehensive, well-researched examination not only of the crime and its aftermath but also of the killers' lives, from childhood to the present day. Like a punctilious courtroom lawyer, [Graham] presents the facts and his analysis, leaving the final verdict to the reader." -The Washington Post

"Graham psychoanalyzes Parker and Hulme from afar but does so tastefully and insightfully. Matricide is a rare crime. As a result, it has not been written about much in the popular literature, a gap Graham fills admirably. A worthy retrospective that feels chilling in the manner of novelist Perry." -Kirkus Reviews

". . . A readable and eye--opening story of 1950s Christchurch and the complicated family dynamics that produced one of New Zealand's most famous murder cases." -Library Journal

"I read this book in three long sittings and was riveted. I found the story of their lives in the years since the trial especially interesting."
--Graham Beattie, New Zealand Herald

"Objective and engaging. This is a great read, although it may disturb your sleep."
--Andrew Rumbles, The Read
