    I'm 48% done with Parents Who Kill: A lot of cases and very interesting ones which I try to look up but also very hard to read about daddy wanting revenge on his ex and killing their kids, or mummy wanting to keep scummy boyfriend so allows him to abuse her kids. Have to take breaks re...

    This is a shattering book. Leaving aside the people, usually mothers, with extreme mental health conditions such as post-partum depression, almost all the others seem to be narcissistic sociopaths. I have read in The Psychopath Whisperer (( think) that there are more women incorrectly ...

    Very well written and very well researched. Some, most, of the parents featured in this book are just plain evil. Others aren't. They're put in difficult situations and just can't cope. I'm a person with no great love for children but even I found some of the cases hard to get through....

    I'm a fan of crime series. I'm a sucker for shows such as Criminal Minds, CSI: Vegas/NY, Dexter and any crime series. And I always liked reading true crime stories. Weird, I know. Actually some of my friends always teases me, calling me weird because of my fascination with them. I reme...

    When I was a young girl I had a classmate that always smelled,hair was messy and oily,clothes dirty and she never failed to bring this suitcase filled with toys and things from her home with her to school. At the time, being so young, I didn't understand. One day I asked her why do you...

    A disturbing read about some sick individuals who murder their offspring, and some desperate people driven heyond what they can cope with. I disagreed that people who euthanase a very disabled child should be in the same volume as those sick fuckers that starved and beat their kids or ...

    ??? = Great book glad I read it. The three stars are for the book itself, it was very well written and a great many cases for anyone who likes to read about true-crime etc on another token I'd like to give -10 stars to all the bastards in the book or even the fact that ther...

    While there are a large number of cases of infanticide presented in this book there is no evidence of any authoritative research, particularly in the more recent cases, other than what is already in the public arena. I found the author's negative comments toward the perpetrators to be ...

    A very good read, very thorough, although some of it quite upsetting and tough to read. Gets a bit preachy in the epilogue. ...

    "The bond between parent and child is the strongest natural connection imaginable. But in rare and shocking cases, that bond can be brutally broken." I didn't have many thoughts on this book before I read it, but anything I could have possibly thought was blown out of my mind. The a...

    Although this book is very sad and disgusting on so many levels, I have given this book the highest possible rating because it outlines the poor justice system we have. Not just in Britain and America but all over the world. Many of the children's deaths in this book could have been pr...

    Although interesting, there was an evident lack of research in many stories. The stories seemed somewhat superficial and the book read like an attempt to cram in as much of stories as possible, whereas fewer well-researched stories would have intrigued and engaged the readers better. ...

    Babies are cherished gifts to most however, some parents commit the most unthinkable of crimes; they take the lives of their own children. Many are clear intentional acts to end the life of their child. In some cases, it is not just one child but all the children in the household whose...

    Mixed feelings about this one - though Carol Anne Davis clearly has done a lot of research and though she writes with plenty of professional authority (the final chapter discussing how to prevent the high level of infanticide in the UK made for very sensible reading), I think the main ...
