The Murder of Childhood Summary


This is description of Ray Wyre's counselling and investigative techniques with sex offenders. The book focuses on his lengthy sessions with Robert Black, convicted of the murder of Caroline Hogg, Susan Maxwell and other young girls who he abducted, abused and killed. By investigating Black's own childhood and elaborate systems of denial (even to himself), Wyre unravelled the truth and began to lead Black from his obsession. This book offers an analysis of the obsessive mind of a brutal serial killer, and an examination of society's inadequate and hypocritical response to sexual offenders. It provides a critique of policing methods and lack of co-ordination between forces and the inadequate treatment of convicted offenders who go on to re-offend and become more dangerous.
