John George Haigh, the Acid-Bath Murderer: Dr Jonathan Oates
One of the more unique British serial killers, John George Haigh killed simply because he wanted more. He had an exaggerated sense of entitlement, and would seek out victims who could support his lavish lifestyle. What is most abhorrent in this true crime murder story is not that he killed six people, but rather what he did with them after they were dead. Newspapers and tabloids would shout out headlines of John being a ´´vampire´´, a man with a blood lust who drank the blood of those he killed. But was he really a vampire? Or was John just a very clever man? The undoing of John Haigh came about when a missing person case quickly progressed to a homicide investigation. The police officers involved stumbled across a scene so horrific, it would stay in their minds forever. You see John had learned an interesting skill while incarcerated for fraud - how to dissolve a body in sulfuric acid. Of all the true crime serial killers, John was different because he didn´t kill out of some need to hurt people. He murdered to gain access to his victims bank accounts. A man from a deeply religious home, John grew up to want more money, the flashy cars and the fancy clothing. When he started to run out of money, he sought out his next victim to bankroll his lifestyle. A cold-hearted ruthless man with no thought or care for others, does John´s motive make classify him as one of the worst serial killers of all time?

On a snowy November day in 1997, in Flint, Michigan, police found the body of 45-year-old waitress Nancy Billiter. Her corpse had survived a botched attempt to burn it. An autopsy revealed that she´d been bound, beaten, sexually violated, and then injected with a lethal mixture of battery acid and heroin. Police suspected Nancy´s friend, Carol Giles, 26, and Giles´ boyfriend, Tim Collier, who had often boasted of a murderous gangland past. As the law´s noose tightened around Giles and Collier, each fingered the other for the murder. Collier tried to hang another crime on Giles - the murder of her 500-pound, diabetic husband. But investigators soon learned the shocking truth: that the cold-blooded couple had killed Jessie Giles with a heroin-laced insulin ´´hot shot´´ and that Nancy, who had been in the wrong place at the wrong time, became the next to die. Convicted of the twisted murders, both killers are spending the rest of their lives behind bars. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill Vargus.

Acid Row. The name the beleaguered inhabitants give to their ´sink´ estate. A no-man´s land of single mothers and fatherless children - where angry, alienated youth controls the streets. Into this battleground comes Sophie Morrison, a young doctor visiting a patient in Acid Row. Little does she know that she is entering the home of a known paedophile . . . and with reports circulating that a tormented child called Amy has disappeared, the vigilantes are out in force. Soon Sophie is trapped at the centre of a terrifying siege, with a man she has come to despise. Whipped to a frenzy by unsubstantiated rumour, the mob unleashes its hatred. Against authority . . . the law . . . and the ´pervert´. ´Protecting Amy´ becomes the catch-all defence for the terrible events that follow. And if murder is part of it, then so be it. But is Amy really missing?
Praise for Murder on a Midsummer Night... ´´As usual, Greenwood populates the novel with an assortment of offbeat characters...and Phryne has plenty of opportunities to unleash her acid tongue and apply her razor-sharp wit.´´ - Booklist The Hon. Phryne Fisher, languid and slightly bored at the start of 1929, has been engaged to find out if the antique-shop-owning son of a Pre-Raphaelite model has died by homicide or suicide. He had some strange friends-a Balkan adventuress, a dilettante with a penchant for antiquities, a Classics professor, a medium, and a mysterious supplier who arrives after dark on a motorbike. Simultaneously, she is asked to discover the fate of the lost illegitimate child of a rich old lady, to the evident dislike of the remaining relatives. With the help of her sister Beth, the cab drivers Bert and Cec, and even her two adoptive daughters, Phryne follows eerie leads that bring her face-to-face with the conquest of Jerusalem by General Allenby and the Australian Light Horse, kif smokers, spirit guides, pirate treasure maps, and ghosts. Kerry Greenwood won the Crime Writers´ Association of Australia Lifetime Achievement Award in 2003. She has written seventeen books in the Phryne Fisher series with no sign yet that Miss Fisher is hanging up her pearl-handled pistol.
