An Extraordinary Publishing Event from One of the World's Most Cutting-Edge Publishers; 'The Moors Murders,' the case of Ian Brady and Myra Hindley and their torture and murder of four children and a teenager in the early 1960s, are thought to be the most appalling crimes ever committed in the UK. Despite the fact that they have been in prison for almost 40 years, their every activity remains a constant source of interest to the media and to the general public. This highly controversial book, a full-length work written by Brady himself, came about after Colin Wilson suggested that he analyse serial murder in an attempt to come to terms with the crimes he and Hindley committed. Based on his readings, his observations of other incarcerated murderers and his own life story, Brady's work is both psychological and philosophical; it does not, in any sense, glorify his and Hindley's crimes but presents a fascinating look into the mind of a murderer. Clearly of major interest to the general reader, this astonishing and remarkable book will also be essential reading for psychologists, forensic scientists and anyone concerned with the workings of the criminal mind.
