The horror of certain crimes is so resonant that it shocks all who hear of them to the very core. Such crimes are revealed within these pages….In this powerful book, noted anthropologist Elliott Leyton explores what it is that drives children to become killers, what turns innocence into deadly evil. The crimes he examines are especially disturbing, as they are perpetrated by children on their own families.Amongst the studies are the horrific case of Jeremy Bamber, who executed his parents, his sister and her twin sons; Steven Benson, the heir to a tobacco fortune who left two bombs in his family's van and Marlene Olive who forced her compliant lover to brutally kill her adoptive parents.Read Sole Survivor and find out how the troubles that lie beneath the façade of middle-class life can cause such disturbing events to occur.
