An incredible addition to the Blake True Crime Library, "A Crime of Passion" is the shocking true story of Katherine Knight and her crimes - the ritual slaying of her partner for a cannibal feast. Knight, a 44-year-old abattoir worker, stabbed father-of-three John Price 37 times, skinned his body, cooked his head, and served him up as a meal for his children in a heinous act that rocked her town and chilled the world to the bone. Drawing on numerous first hand accounts, and a detailed assessment of Kathy's personal life, this is an incredibly disturbing profile of normality twisted out of all recognition into the dark world of the remorseless psychopath. "A Crime of Passion" offers a fascinating insight into the true motivation behind such a grotesque act and is a horrifying story of love, lust, revenge and murder - all the more shocking for every word is true.
