Sounded good but reading the local newspapers would have been as informative. a young boy - obviously deranged - stabs and kills 2 people, thus making him Britains youngest serial killer uuh? I thought you had to kill 3 people at different times to be a serial killer. But there was no real depth to this book, .Just think a good story was lost here glad when I finished it..over sentionalised money maker

WOW what a story! This is the story of a teenage Serial Killer. Very sad to know a child this age can have the thoughts and do the things he did. There were many red flags and signs of his problems that many many people including friends, teachers, parents, police and even a judge should have picked up and gotten him help. He once told a teacher and other classmates that when he grows up he wants to be a murderer yet nobody reported this and that is exactly what he became at 15 years old.

When you look at James Fairweather's picture, he looks like a normal, clean-cut teenager, which we definitely was not. James was into violent video games and blamed voices in his dead telling him to kill the random victims he chose. There were many red flags that should have been investigated especially when he kept telling people that he wanted to be a murderer. Chris Swinney does an excellent job detailing the life and crimes of James Fairweather. I highly recommend this book.

This is a true story of a teenage serial killer. Swinney not only relays the events but gives lots of information from the mind of the killer. Shocking and interesting true crime read!

James Fairweather was 15 when he killed 2 people. He stated that he heard voices that told him to kill. The voices got louder more aggressive stating violent things. People started calling him a freak and a weirdo because he was always talking to himself. When apprehended he confessed that he was planning to kill at least 15 more people. Fairweather was infatuated with other Serial Killers and he thought that he was a better Serial Killer than Peter Sutcliffe. It is possible that he were not caught he would have launched an attack at his school and killed his parents. The amount of excitement and joy that he obtained from takin someone's life should of scared anyone that was near him. He showed no remorse about what he had done. Chris Swinney adds his thought and experience as a Police Officer in his writing of this book which I love and enjoy, its not just a story. it enlightens the reader to the hurdles and things a Police Officer goes through in there day to day life in these situations. A great book for all True Crime Lovers and a must read!!!!!!

Chris Swinney has written another top notch book.
James Fairweather was 15 years old when he committed two horrific murders.
He was a child filled with hate who claimed he heard voices telling him to kill.
On March 28,2014 young Fairweather listened to the voices and set out looking for someone to kill.He came upon James Attfield, a handicapped man who had passed out drunk.Fairweather stabbed him over a hundred times while the voices in his head reportedly laughed.
Though questioned in connection with this murder he had a solid alibi and was let go.
Then on June 17,2014 he attacked and stabbed 31 years old Nahid Almanea while she was walking alone and murdered her also.
He was questioned again but let go.
The next time he tried to hide in some bushes but a lady walking her dog saw him and called police.Fairweather was apprehended and confessed to the murders, astounding police with his chilling account of the murders.
A must-read for everyone.
