"Davis has a serious agenda. Her aim is to show that, without exception, these children suffered lives of appalling mental and physical cruelty, and that in most cases, this, and this alone, was what most likely led them to kill. The crimes these children committed are at least matched, if not overshadowed, by the things that were done to them by their parents and carers." -- London Times Educational SupplementFrom the Publisher:
Why do two young boys abduct, torture and kill a toddler? What makes a teenage girl plot with her classmates to kill her own father? Why does a child set fire to the homes of his classmates? We tend to think of children as innocents, incapable of murder but their crimes can be some of the most horrific and terrifying acts committed. In this new book Carol Anne Davis explores the actions and motivations of thirteen killers aged between ten and seventeen. Well known cases including those of Mary Bell, Robert Thompson and John Venables are examined alongside historical case studies and lesser known crimes. Children Who Kill is an intelligent and moving account of the dark and troubled childhoods that lead to murder.
