Predators looks at the men and women who abduct and murder children and young adults in sexually motivated crimes.
This book assesses the psychological and social forces that make these homicidal child abductors commit their crimes and shows how people manage to track them down. This phenomenon was brought sharply into international focus by the disappearance in August 2002 of two ten year old girls in the sleepy UK village of Soham in Cambridgeshire, then later of little Madeleine McCann in Spain in 2006. Amanda has spent the past eighteen years studying and interviewing killers and criminals from across the globe, culminating in seven books on true crime. Paul Wilson is a criminologist and forensic psychologist at Bond University. He is an established author and media commentator.
