The Australian Book of Family MurdersBook - 2012
You're unlikely to be gunned down on the street by someone you've never met. But you may well be stabbed to death in the comfort of your own home. More than fifty per cent of all murders in Australia each year are classified as "domestic," that is, they involve a death caused by another family member, whether it be a mother, father, partner, child, brother or sister. The Australian Book of Family Murders contains over twenty of the most memorable and bizarre cases of such death -- from fire, poison, gunshots, knife wounds and brute strength -- over the past one hundred years.
